My H&R conversion that is. Got it out today for the first time.Was shooting 56grs N120 and a 200gr sst.I only shot it 4 times today at 50yds just to get it pretty close.Im going to take it to the range one day this week and fine tune it at 100yds.I will say that it doesnt handle the recoil like that heavy savage/pacnor i had.Recoil was very mild with that boat anchor. lol But with this short skinny lady, you better hold on to that forearm because she will jump up and pop you in the nose.The scope poped me on the nose the first shot.I wasn't holding on good.Love the way it handles, cant wait to see what she does at 100ydz. Im gonna shoot 3- 3 shot groups useing 56,58,and 60grs of N120 and see which is the tightest.

Yep, it's like pulling a big block out of a work truck and dropping it into a pinto. Hold on to tight. LOL

It is always a good idea to hold the forearm at the range on all guns because the POI will change when you get it off the bench and hold the forearm. I primarily hunt with big bores and when I got my 06 out for a friend to use I couldn't believe how much less recoil it had. That H@R 45-70 sure is a handy little tool as I enjoy carrying mine too. Have you lightened the trigger yet?

I shot my Apex today for the first time and it too had pretty good "jump" caught me buy surprise the first shot. Looks like with some fine tuning it going to shoot the 200gr SST pretty dang good. I was shooting duplex 10gr SR4759and 50gr H4198. Hope you get that feisty little rascal under control Cecil. LOL
