Yea I have that rifle and a buffalo classic , it is a great rifle to hunt with and very dependable. Do you reload ? If you do I can give you a great load for that rifle ,well atleast you could give it a try.

I have shot a 45-70, and I'm not buying the "hardly no recoil" comment. Congrats on your new gun.

I find mine does not kick near as bad as say my 12ga sluggun pump. But I shoot 300gr partitions over 48gr of IMR4198 kicking little over 2000fps. I am sure when you get into the 35KPSI loads, with 405gr bullets, things could get harry.

Are you shooting hand loads or factory ? If you try some of those hot factroy loads (buffalo bore, garrett) they will rock you pretty hard. I like for factory loads the 350 grain PMC they are pretty good rounds at or around 1950fps.

Was going to get one myself a few years ago but went with the 336D which was a special run at the time for davidson's. Basically a .35 Rem guide gun. Figured being different I'd grab it and it, like your .45-70 is an awesome gun. maybe someday I'll grba another 45-70 but right now my #1 in that chambering is more than enough. Also, I can understand the low felt recoil as my #1 is a *****cat to shoot. Enjoy your new firearm!

If you shoot the regular weak factory 20KPSI loads, nothing is too bad, if you reload up to 40KPSI, (405gr kicking at 1950fps) believe me, it can be a handfull.

Yae the remington's are the low end of the 405's. Give the PMC 350's a try.
