RECOIL—Does the heavy recoil of the 45-70 have a tendency to change the course of the bullet, or has the bullet left the gun before the recoil takes place?
I believe that in sighting rifles, the great arms manufacturing people make allowance for the direction of the kick. I shot a 45-90 for years1 and it shot where I held it—I killed deer and woodchucks and even grey squirrels with it. I let it kick—and I think the bullet is still in the barrel when the kick begins to work, for you will notice that arms companies say a rifle screwed in a vice, so it can’t move doesn’t have a fair test.
