I have one of their (H&R 1871) Handi Rifles in 45-70. I started out loading them with 405 grain bullets but it was wearing my butt out so I changed to a 350 grain bullet. It still kicks pretty bad but nowhere near as the 405 did. Of course the Handi Rifle is not as long as the Buffalo Classic and therefore not as heavy which makes the recoil a little more intense. The last deer I shot was with that rifle and when it was hit it went down immediately!!

That is a great looking gun and it looks like you had a lot of fun shooting it.
