I was enamored with Remington Rolling Block rifles in 7mm Mauser, but I've recently made the plunge into BP shooting and rediscovered they made a load of different ones in BP cartridges. I'm looking at the 1867 Danish models which might use old 45/70 cases and the old Argentine ones in 43 Spanish. Anybody shoot these? I'm thinking about getting one or the other.

Best Regards,

Mark

The Danish is more forgiving in the accuracy department since it is a straightwall case. The semi-shouldered BP rounds take special steps to pull out the accuracy.

Looks like I should save up for a Dane. An Argentine just went beyond my price range.

Best Regards,
