Fair to say it does have a bit of a recoil. What would one hunt in Whales with that caliber? Deer? Elk? Do you have bears?

I have never shot a .45-70 rifle but have shot a shotgun,other than that a lot of large cal. revolvers namely .45-70.
Just keep the pad tight against the shoulder and enjoy...I hope!
First shots through my new 1895 GS tomorrow!
