Other than the siamese mauser, can any other bolt gun be successfully chambered to 45-70 and use the ruger/siamese mauser loads? Just curous
Any rifle that is physically large enough can be converted, IF the smith is willing to do enough work. For some rifles its fairly simple, for others it would take a serious rebuilding of the action, but it is possible, if not even remotely cost effective. Or suitable...
