Postby quigleysharps4570 » Sun Aug 26, 2007 5:58 am

Got this new one about a month ago...it's an 1876 Winchester replica made by Uberti.
The caliber is 45-60 and have plans on it being my new deer buster come regular rifle season. :thumbsup:

The 45-60 isn't a common cartridge these days gtk...pretty much a handloading proposition.
Original calibers for this rifle were 45-75...45-60...40-60 and the 50-95. The 45-60 can be formed from 45-70 brass is why I went that route.
