This topic is a few months old... but ill answer anyway. a 45-110 in a pistol? Better save up for an X-Ray... i have a reproduction Sharps in 45-110 and it kicks the living SH!% out of my should with a 17 pound rifle... imagine what it would do with a pistol... Your talking about a 1,000 yard buffalo caliber here not a 45 long colt... Factory loads for the .45-110-550 launch a 45 caliber 550 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1475 fps with muzzle energy of 2350 ft. lbs.... if you honestly are thinking of shooting one of these out of a pistol you have bigger balls than i do. :lol:spade said:Anyone remember the 45-110? Ive been doing a bit of research on this round lately and have come to the realization that this would be a hell of a pistol round (contender of course) . Any insights people?
Theres about 30 pounds of felt reciol difference in a 45-70 and a 45-110 And thats with standard factory ammo. With Buffalo Bore 45-110 450 Gr Hard Cast Lead ammo it kicks more than my .300 RUM with 220 Gr SMK's.spade said:Ive shot the 45-70 in a pistol more than once so i wouldnt think the 45-110 would be too much worse.
Hmmm...makes sense! Never thought about it. I just saw that and said "no thanks". Might impair my guitar playing abilities to have a broken hand. I'll try this rifle, but that's with 3 times as much weight, a buttpad, and a much better grip. Know what I mean Vern? Good God, did I just do Ernest? I gotta go...Ballistic_Coefficiency said:Ah yes... those .50BMG pistols... you know why they dont kick all that much? because by the time the bullet leaves the barrel only 5% of the powder is burning. :lol:
