Is the .700 Nitro Express with it’s 1000 grain bullet and 2000 fps a good buffalo cartridge?

Pedersoli 50-70 Rolling Block Rifle

I really love the “Old West” big bore rifles like the Sharps, Rolling Blocks and High Walls especially those in 50 caliber. I had a Cimarron “Pride of the Plains”1873 Sharps in 45-70 and it was SWEET!. They’re built like the Fort Knox vault.

Here’s another one that is simply awesome…Pedersoli Rolling Block in 50-70 Govt.

The color case hardened receiver is a work of art.

Flip up long range sights are very accurate. The large octagon barrel is heavy and very sturdy/accurate. I like a nice and heavy rifle. It just feels good.

Let’s take a look at some hand loads for the 50-70 Govt. Reloading is fun!

You can get real creative with the 50-70 Govt… use modern big game bullets (solid copper) or old style cast. Bullet weights range from 450 grains to 680 grains. And actually I had some 700 grain WFNGC’s in .510 caliber a few years ago for the 50 Alaskan.

Lone Wolf Glock Barrel with Alpha Wolf Comp

The Glock is an awesome handgun and is very versatile. You can change barrels easily with zero gunsmithing. You can buy a barrel, install it in your Glock and then shoot another caliber. It’s 2 + guns in one.

Here’s a video review of the Wolf 10 mm Auto Glock barrel and the Alpha Wolf compensator. The Wolf barrel is threaded to accept the compensator. The comp really reduces recoil.
