    I'm not sure I'd want one in 45-70. That's a bit light weight for that caliber. I remember the Ruger #3 in 45-70 that that one was flat out painful with worm handholds and not all that comfortable with factory ammo.
    I'm a big fan of the .35 Whelen but again, with proper handholds, the recoil would be quite stiff in one of those. I wouldn't mind having one in 7-08 or better yet 7x57. Wouldn't mind seeing one in .358 Win. as well.

    I certainly appreciate calibers mentioned but I think Henry is sticking with mainstream calibers for good reason.

    looks like something I'd want. Any ideas on what level reloads the 45-70 would handle?

    6 pound 44 mag = good for target and hunting

    6 pound 45-70 = after 4 shots you will find you are closing your eyes as you pull (snatch) the trigger.

    This is why I don't own a 45-70 even in a Marlin 1895 at 7 1/2 lb it kicks like hell I find my 444 to be hard on the shoulder with 265 and 300 gr. bullets

    I'm glad to see Henry enter the singleshot market. I think we'll get a well built American rifle for the money. I do think that they should offer these singleshots in more traditional rimmed cartridges like .22 Hornet, .30-30, .38-55 and .45-70(which is an offering). When I wrote Anthony Imperato(Henry President + CEO) with these suggestions, I also suggested that they come with ladder sights like those on the Original Henry's for target shooting as well as hunting. We already have manufacturers producing modern cartridge singleshots in .223, .243, .308 . Just my .02 cents.

    I remember my Ruger No. 3 Carbine in .45-70 Gov't. I was pushing a 500 gr. hard cast boolit with 40 gr. IMR 3031 and it was a brutal experience. I wrote to Elmer Keith and he told me, "That strong Ruger action can safely handle 44 gr. IMR 3031." I never tried Mr. Keith's suggestion as the only thing worse than being shot with the 40 gr. load was firing the 40 gr. load.
