Here is the typical .45-70 group from yesterday. Range 100 yards, 5 MPH crosswind, Federal Classic 300 gr. Sierra Gameking at 1800 fps from the 24" Contender barrel, 2½X scope, sitting supported.

The recoil on this light rifle can be a little daunting. I was just getting used to it when I shot this group. The rifle probably shoots better than I can hold it, the rifle is awfully light. It only weighs about 5-1/2 to 5-3/4 lbs loaded.
