I just purchased a Winchester 1885 in 45-70 caliber. Looking forward to learning this round and rifle. Anything I need to know going in? It already has the tang sight. I am coming from the bolt action world.

Welcome! Is this a new rifle or replica? Do you hand load?
Too old to be nice, never too old to learn!
