I've got a Uberti High Wall 45-70 with a Lee Shaver Soul sight and Hadley eyecup- shoot black, got 3rd place at the Bill Williams bison shoot at Winter Range.  It took a couple of hundred rounds downrange to get the barrel broken in, but now I feel it will shoot as good as the high dollar guns, the barrels are made by Pedersoli which I am told are some of the best- I made a few changes to mine , cut the metal crescent butplate off and installed a recoil pad, now I can shoot it all day and not have a sore shoulder- they are really a lot of fun-

Private party can NOT ship powder or primers.

You'll have to sell that local FTF.

Steve Brooks for moulds.

Starline for brass. Anneal the case mouth.

MVA for sights(don't go the cheap here)I run MVA L/R buffalo Soule w/Hadley eyecup. The MVA #113 works very well for the front sight.

Goex Old 'E' for real BP.

CCI br2 primers.

When you talk to Steve Brooks. I recommend a Paul Jones Creedmoor bullet at 540gn.

You want all bands at .458 dia and the nose no more than .448 dia.

Are there any ranges near you that go out past 300yds?
