Shortly after I bought my NEF buff classic, I called H&R with one question???. What pressure level could I load to? The nice lady that answered said," all of our single shot rifles can be safely loaded to top lever rifle loadings, IOW level II loads. "

I tried several barn burners with 405 lead boolits, was nursing a sore shoulder for about a week after that! Enough misery, now I seldom go above mid level II loads. No need to load like it was a 458 mag! The main problem with the buff is that darned curved STEEL buttplate! Might be period correct, but it sure ain't comfortable! I will be looking for a regular wood stocked receiver or a complete nuther rifle to get a standard buttstock. Then put a kick eeze or limbsaver on it. Maybe some lead in the stock as well!

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?
