new single shot

new to me any way. Winchester 1885 low wall, 25-20 single shot, not the same as the 25-20 WCF. A round beside a quarter and a 40-70 Ballard cartridge. nice shooting little rifle.

That's an interesting piece of hunting arms history there. Have you had time to shoot it yet?

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

yes. got the rifle today and the ammo came today also. the ammo is down loaded smokeless, with 85 grain GG lead bullets. 35 yards, it was touching holes. we shot steel from 30 yards out to 100 yards with it. its about like shooting a .22 mag.. I should have everything here by the weekend to load the brass with blackpowder loads.
