If you go with the Stutz you'll need to research an entirely new set of guns. 

Springfield 03 and 1911 ?    I could cover that

Major,

Have you fired your '95 yet? I ask because I owned two of them in the past. One was a custom original chambered for the 35 Whelen. Fired with 250g hand loads that thing kicked like a mule. I eventually traded it off. A couple years later I got a deal on a used Browning in 30-40. That one kicked about the same with factory duplicate loads of 180g and 220g bullets.

If you just want to shoot that thing for fun, I'd recommend some lighter cast bullet loads. Unless of course you just like pain. Then have at it. (smiley face goes here)

It is still on the Brown Truck in route, more than likely arrive at my FFL on Wedesday...

 The main fodder is the same cast bullet load or simlar as my 03 & M17.
TrailBoss & 165 Grain cast bullet.


I will also have load of Shooters World Buffalo Rifle  (Lovex D060) to work with

This old Fart had an 1895 in 7.62 Ruissan, after production run. This Rifle was chopped to Carbine Length! Sold gun to Quickfire. I understand/accept, I can’t beat “Quickfire” doubt none of you can also.
Go ahead & try!

I have a 28" rifle in musket configuration, .30-40, that is very pleasant to shoot.

We here (my end of the swamp) have a fellow shooter whom arrives at the local CAS matches in a fully restored 36 Ford Sedan.  Or maybe it's a 38.  Nope, it's a 36.  Way cool.  Room for the Gun Kart and other stuff in the back seat area.  Wish it were MINE!!

When I was first able to drive by myself to the local range, I was shooting my .45-70 one day.  A gentleman next to me asked if he could try a shot or two with it, so I let him fire it a couple of times.  He then handed me his 1895 and let me fire it - .405 Winchester.  What a kick! (both from getting to shoot it and from the recoil!)  Afterwards I always wanted to get one in .30-40 Army, but never was able to afford one.

I had never held a 1895 , let alone shot one...

I had recalled seeing the above photo a few times in a box collection of old random family photos.
There was another of my Dad & Uncle as small children circa 1910 with their Granddad ( my great Grandfather ) on buckboard .
Mr Ragland (GGrandFather) was holding a Double Berral Shotgun.

These collections were in my late Sister's possession and I had not seem them in many years.
I remember seeing them but did not register the guns other they were a shotguns of some type
Way off in the 1895 case .

But something , I guess must have clicked back then...  As I aways liked Lever guns and own several , but not a 1895.

re-finding this photo was both  nostalgic and  eye opening  :D

I'm having it professionally mounted and copy enlarged for framing.... ( also the one of my Dad and Great Grand Father )

Some years ago I had another photo done,  it was of my Dad' s Father & Mother with Theodore Roosevelt.

Since pictures of my Mauser have shown up in this thread, I figured that I should pull out my 1895 for another photo. That's a sporting rifle in .30 US (.30-40) from 1899. Both guns have been refinished at some point, thus I could afford them.  Of note is the military inspector mark on the lever. My understanding is that Winchester was using up parts which had been inspected for the military contract, but not used before the contract was completed.  It's a very cool rifle.

Actually yeah, it was that one or the one with the Cuban Hut BG prop that caught my eye.
It is these video's that have spurred my attention... vicariously  :)

I played with a load(s) in my 95 yesterday ,13.1 &  14.3 grain of TB with 165 grain lead bullet from Missouri Bullet Co.
At my home gallery, 20 -25 yards is about my safety limit into my steel back stops, I'll need a trip to the range to run 50 yard tests 

The 13.1 is the load I use in my 03 & M17 .... both powder charges seemed promising
