Re: Is the 43 Spanish Legal in BPCR???

I did however get 2 rams :lol: I figure my first match with bad eyeballs, I'm happy! Second, Well the Argentine...

Re: Is the 43 Spanish Legal in BPCR???

Well been busy casting some bullets and getting some rounds ready, Just going to go with it and try to make the watkins shoot on the 5th. After that we'll see exactly what I'm going to do. May keep it? Might put it on the market and see if I can get into something in 45-70?

Re: 1879 Argentine RB to 45-90?? Same Barrel contour??

Barrel liner? Could be a posibility? Could have it rebored to 45-70 but would probably have to have the barrel set back a bit due to the 43 spanish chamber?

Re: WTT, Need entry Level BPCR rifle

Plainbase---Thanks

I'll quit worryin! I'm going to go ahead and go to the next match might be interesting for me. Never shot in one! So I would be a first timer. Always shot with a couple of friends out at pawnee or the range north of Greely.

Should be interesting!

Thanks ALL!

Re: Is the 43 Spanish Legal in BPCR???

Well I know it's interesting that it was a contract made rifle for Argentine. Made in the US and shipped overseas. I've also read that the 43 Spanish started as the 43 Remington, but not sure if that was true??

Think I'm just going to show up at the next match and see what happens?

1879 Argentine RB to 45-90?? Same Barrel contour??

I have a very nice 1879 Argentine RB in 43 Spanish. Very accurate for what it is, however with the cost of brass I'm considering having it rebarreled to either a 45-70 or 45-90. Both are a lot cheaper than 43 spanish brass! Now my question. I really do not want a full on make over of this RB, wood i...
