Default Uberti 1885 High Wall replica

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the Uberti 1885 high wall, I'm especially interested in 38/55. I'm interested in trying to get superior accuracy in a cast bullet shooter. I've spent a couple of years and acquired half a dozen bullet molds and several size dies trying out loads in a '94 Winchester and never was quite satisfied with the resultant 3 moa or larger groups. I am thinking a high wall might be just the thing to bring my cast bullets into sniper level groups.

The story of David & Goliath only demonstrates the superiority of ballistic projectiles over hand weapons, poor old Goliath never had a chance.

"superior accuracy in a cast bullet shooter"

CJ, what will you be shooting with the rifle?

CJ, I like the way you think!

COPD has pretty much curtailed my hunting so these days I only shoot paper.

I've had that gun in .45-70 for the past decade. I don't shoot cast so can't help you there. But with a Marbles short tang sight and 60 grs. of Varget pushing a 300-gr. Sierra it prints 1.5" groups at 100 yards. It's a heavy bugger and I haven't shot it much lately but it sure looks nice in my gun cabinet. Good luck with yours. Yah, I know it's an old post but I just saw it.

CJ,

I am a little late to the dance here, but I have owned one of these in 38-55. I bought it used, and it was a fine rifle for the money, but I have three Miroku (Browning and Winchester) High Walls, and the Uberti did not shoot to the standard of the Mirokus. It was about five years ago, and would have to dig out my records, but I don't think I got anything better than 3 MOA out of it. Your mileage may vary.
