I have the same gun. Where'd u get the cheek pad? I like the looks and really need something to bring my eye up to the scope.

I have some hornady 300gr interlocks loaded up that I love. Even with the "small" 300gr bullets it lets you know when you pull the trigger.

I would really like a Guide Gun, but ideally in .50 Alaskan.
My 45/70 is just a Handi Rifle.

VERY nice!!!

I've recently been thinking about a guide gun 45-70. Would be useless to me, but a nice Magnum Research BFR would compliment it nicely!

Yes it is.
Partly because it has no checkering.

I've had the cheek pad since I bought the Rifle, more than 10 years. Can't remember for sure, but my gut says Cabelas.
Mine LOVEs Federal blue box 300 grain bullets. First time I shot them I had walk down and check the target to figure out what was going on.

Three shots, one ragged hole

Turns out it's stupidly accurate with almost anything...
