I have been looking for a 45-70 in a bolt gun but haven't done any good. I really like the 45-70 at Ruger #1 velocities that a lever gun can't withstand. So, I decided to re-barrel a Savage 110 7MAG to 458WM. This way, I can load it anywhere from hot 45-70 to full blown 458WM. It couldn't have been any easier. With the barrel kit from E.R.Shaw and a little barrel channel reshaping, it was done in a couple of hours.

You have a good barrel I have a Shaw in 6mm, I also like the 45-70. The 438 should do what you want.

I've been eyeing an ER Shaw barrel with the Helical fluting. Good looking set up with the 458WM.

Very nice Rig!!
How long does it take to receive a barrel from E.R.Shaw?
I inquired about a rifle and it was like 14 months.

I really couldnt comment on the length of time from ER Shaw but I do have a 325 wsm that was built by them and it is great. I would say that it is worth the wait even if it does take a while.
