Nice rifle. That looks like a Buffalo shell and bullet.  Any out there?

I will likely never cease being amazed at what so many of you accomplish in your shops.  Great job, riflecountry!

No buffalo out there, if that's what you mean. There are a few rocks around 850 yards that make good imaginary buffalo, though!
That is a Paul Jones 45001 bullet in Starline brass. I wish I had a few more of his moulds.

Too bad there aren't any buffalo  Cry

Paul's molds were as good as molds get, for sure.

The PJ 45001 Creedmoor with 68gr of 1.5Fg is one of the top most accurate long range bullet in all of my 45-70 rifles
If one doesn't cast, Sagebrush has them ... (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

Riflecountry - yours is a rifle to be proud of - Great Job
  

Regards
John

Riflecountry, very nice job on the casting!  You could share more pictures with us and Rodney really appreciates seeing what his castings have turned into! 
Thanks
Greg

I machined my own front sight..... If I recall correctly,  I just bought the bubble, and used Shavers sight inserts.
I also have a 40-82 I will post up pictures of....I have used it for BPCR Silhouette, but this 45-90 I have just used for fun and long range rock busting so far. Might have to take it to a match.

The most fun you can have is 1,000 yard LR match. One of my favorite trophies is my Ottawa Arms Collectors 1,000 yard Bullseye Patch  Grin

That setup should be perfect.
