Re: New Rossi Lever action mod. 1892
That's a very nice rifle!
You won't have much kick with 45 Colt ammo, but for Hog hunting, and stopping power, a .44 Mag. is better for 350 lb. or more larger boars.
I just bought a Rossi Puma 92, (60's era) lever action in .44 Mag. (10+1), and it has less kick then my .308 Win M88. which I think is soft. I fired 50 rounds with it, at water bottles, in the local gravel pit. With buckhorn sights, plinking at 100 ft., 150 and 200 ft. just to get the feel of my rifle, and see if I was shooting what I aimed at.
I'd like to hear what you think, after your Hog hunt. Good Luck!
