Yep, I haven’t shot a 45-70 in a while. I’m itching to touch off that boomer.

For being a 45-70 I didn't feel the recoil was bad at all on my Brass one. In fact it's the same to me in that or in my dad's CC one with the recoil pad. I only shoot the Cowboy Action loads though. I'm sure the hunting loads would hurt a bit. Overall though, I prefer the CC version. It's a prettier gun in my opinion, and if I ever get another one, the CC will be the way I go.

well understood .... HSM Cowboy Action ammo has a mild recoil and is fun to fire in our CCH 45-70 .... HSM Dangerous Game ammo is hugely different .... it delivers a devastating bullet down range at the expense of a much, much stronger kick

:) I agree with Big Al and JE bar you want a recoil pad with 45/70. I have the cch with scope which will shoot at least a 3 in group @ 300 yards. Even with hot loads I can target shoots good while. With no pain. I’m 64 yes old. Love mine!

Although i have not handled the brass version, I did handle the All Weather and the Steel version. The All Weather was nice, but it did not seem to fit my personality. In the end, I accidentally purchased the Steel version today. I will pick it up on Thursday afternoon. I agree with BigAl52 regarding the recoil pad.

looking forward to reading your impressions and range reports .... 45-70 is an extremely powerful caliber .... please be sure to revisit our How Many ? thread (link below) and as you did for another Henry, add it to our community's total
