Trying out the Henry .45-70 big bore lever action (VIDEO)

Hickok45 spends 20 minutes going over Henry’s cowboy gun chambered in the very stout 45-70 Government.

The U.S. Army’s official military caliber for the last quarter of the 19th Century, its last military hurrah was in the Spanish-American War. However, this heavy pill has been big medicine for just about any large game in North America and has remained popular.
