I think H&R fixed the short throats in 45-70 barrels about the same time they went extractors, all my 45-70 extractor barrels have had decent throats, all the ejector barrels had no throating.

UPDATE - Range Report - took my BC with its cheap ass scope to the range again this morning. I made some changes at the bench last week after watching some videos about scope install and set up. Basically I changed out the insert in my cheek rest for the highest one that came with it and I slightly shortened the scope eye relief. With these changes found it much easier to get a proper sight picture without any shadows and minimum of head adjustment.

I shot (4) groups - 3 rounds each at 25yd, 50yd, 75yd and 100yd. Same loads I shot last time.
  1. 25yd - 1" group,
  2. 50yd - 1" group,
  3. 75yd - 1.5" group
  4. 100yd - 2" group
I am pleased with the improvement in the grouping, will likely take it out a few more times with the scope before switching back to my peep sight setup.
