The 45/70 is just a legendary calibre from the very beginning of the self contained cartridge period. My rounds are charged with black powder and a hardened cast lead bullet. The scope on the rifle is also a vintage piece: a Winchester A5 scope from the early days of the 20th century. Even if the setup is anything but modern, it still can do the job even at 300m distance.

Well this is my channel and these are my impressions about shooting old and repro blackpowder and cartridge guns. You will find target shooting, hunting, reloading and military history related videos here starring pre 1945 firearms. Since I was a little child I knew I want to be a history teacher. In fact I graduated as one. Later I studied military sciences on university level, and now I am doing my phd in firearms history while I teach military history at the university. That’s my life, my hobby. I hope you’ll enjoy my videos as much I enjoyed making them. Greetings form Hungary, the land of good wines and beautiful women. Oh yes, and please forgive my Hunglish. 😉
