Looking to purchase a rifle in 40-65

Recommended Posts

GREAT cartridge! My C-Sharps was a great shooter.

Which ever 40-65 you buy,  Don’t buy the Chaparral 1876 clone.  Very accurate barrel but the action parts were a nightmare to correct.  Took 3 drives up to Charter Arms in CT, the service center and spend all day each trip going through the parts for proper fits.  Was for my rifle and a good friend who bought one also

after got them worked out, no complains with wood and barrel

if your really interested, there is a forum on CasCity devoted to the 40-65

I shoot a C-Sharps 40-65 highwall.  The one thing I found out is brass is hard to get what you want. Starline makes and sells brass. But right on their website they warn you that their brass is short of the recommended length. About 15 thousands.


I ended up resizing new Starline 45-70 brass to get the correct length.
