Hey guys I just picked up my Winchester 1886 limited edition takedown model. It is chambered and 45-90 Winchester Centerfire. It is a deluxe model and it's half at agonal half round Barrel l. My question is upon inspecting the barrel I noticed that it says 45-90 black powder only. I have noticed that a lot of people on YouTube and cast bullet Forum etc etc are getting 400 grain Speers out a 2200 feet second + safely out of this rifle. My question is an academic one if the 1886 is strong and stronger than the Marlin 1895 and use strong Starline brass why am I limited to Black Powder only which does not interest me in the least bit? I did call Winchester customer service and they gave me the legal safe answer we recommend only what stamped on the barrel however the guy did go further to say that it is a very strong action and so is the Starline brass without letting the cat out of the bag that it is safe to do so even though he never actually stated it. Any opinions on this matter at all thank you

Additionally I have read many many places that you can actually fire any 45-70 government Factory loads through a 45-90 example 350 to 500 grain Buffalo Bore which are loaded to the gills

okay I read and a few other forms that the reason they put that on there is to cover your ass type deal. It's because there is no Sammi specs for the 45-90

Here are some more pictures. It now wears a Williams FP peep sight. I did not have to remove the rear sight because the peep "prints" right on top of the buckhorn sight and is covered completely! :

Beautiful rifle. I am such a sucker for take downs.
