I just bought this Remington (Baikal) double rifle in 45.70. I'm thinking of loading it with 300 grain lead free bullets and using it as a short range hog gun.Posted ImagePosted Image

Man that is one pretty rifle, and one great caliber. We have a Marlin 1895 Cowboy (26" octagon barrrel) in the family that became an instant favorite with everyone. I absolutely love calibers that can be loaded from one extreme to the other like that too. Hope you enjoy yours just as much as we do.

Beautiful rifle. Definitely big enough for pigs.
