Well, its official, I have my tickets, and I am going to Kentucky, to visit my daughter, and kill some whitetails with my Handirifle! I'm taking my 270 synthetic, which shoots Rem green box 130gr well, and my 20ga bbl with it. Last week I put my opensighted 45/70 bbl on the 270 frame, and it fit, and locked up perfect. It was not factory fitted to the 270 receiver, it has its own receiver. I know that H&R would have a fit about this, but I shot the 45/70 on the 270 receiver with Federal factory 300gr loads, and everything is OK. I will use a light handload with the Rem 300gr and 3031 powder. My daughter put a couple of salt licks down by the creek in back, and has found two more properties that I can hunt on. I am really excited about the trip, all but the flying! Edit, brain fart, Remington 300gr jhp bullets not Sierra!
