goodshot When I skip taking tumeric and a little black pepper each day my hands start to stiffen and recoil becomes an issue, good thing most of us have developed our shooting skills to where we can be confident in our accuracy with smaller calibers.

oldandslow With age comes infirmities. Since if you aren't aging you are dead I'll take the infirmities. I'm learning to live with mine and it's an ongoing process. The 44 magnum has become a 44 special and the 50-140 has become a 50-70 and the 30-06 is waiting on some reduced handloads. I'm still tough enough for 357 handguns and 22-250 rifles as that's the largest caliber I have below the 30-06.

Don't need the Trailboss yet. It was great fun to shoot and didn't hurt either when I shot it. I may change the grips since I noticed that when it warmed up and I took my gloves off, the grip was slick and harder to hold properly. My other BH, in .357, has rubber grips. If the frames are the same, I'll try moving them to be sure that is what I really want.
Anyway, it was a hoot to shoot.

t.r. I had my Savage .308 sent to MagnaPort in Michigan and recoil was tamed considerably. No more muzzle jump either. I added a Limb Saver pad to the butt stock which also helped a lot. Now my .308 shoots like a dream! Sometimes, us older guys need all the help we can get.

I still enjoy shooting my 4" Mountain Gun, just not with full house loads all the time. It's a lot of fun with mild loads on reactive targets, which is how I recycle cans.

Hopalong7: if I could do that I wouldn't even consider thinking about giving it up.

gpa: you are older than dirt, you said so in another post, so how come you don't know that Rugers are famous for bashing your middle finger knuckle? Remember that turnip truck you mentioned? Ok... So how did your Saturday date in the deer woods go? The weather here for us was miserable and we didn't see a thing, except squirrels and Blue Jays. Hope yours was better.....
Killed a big doe yesterday morning! I made a heck of a shot too.......she was almost close enough to hit in the head with a hammer. 50 cent piece size hole going in and a tennis ball size hole coming out. Right through the boiler room.

I am with you, I have loaded some subsonic loads in the 45-70 with bullseye and unique. They shot consistent even with a virtually empty case. Trailboss makes it harder to double charge a case, but if you are diligent with your reloading, that ain't gonna happen anyway.

My Handi in 4570 was a pleasure to shoot loaded to max with it. Powder right up to the 405 gr. bullet.
