Hi Oney, I am happy to hear you have been bit by the bug. Good for you, and welcome to the world of the rest of us who got bit by the same bug. Not much recoil? The Black Hills ammo may be a little anemic. Now try the diet it was made for.... black powder. There will be more recoil, not intolerable though. It is no trouble to run 20 rounds of black powder cartridges through that rifle, but you will know you have been shooting something. I won't fib about that. But it will not jar your teeth loose, (unless you are in the habit of shouldering a rifle orally.) I am in agreement with the others, you ought to learn to load the black powder ammo for these. It is more of a hoot. Get you a copy of "Loading Cartridges for the Original .45-70 Springfield Rifle and Carbine", by J.S. and Pat Wolf, from Wolf's Weatern Traders. This is the book to have for guys like us. Good luck with your endeavors, Oney, and again, welcome!
