    Pedersoli Kodiak Double Rifle

    Anybody have one of these 45/70 doubles? Just curious what kind of ammo they can handle?
    Can they handle some higher pressure loads like a new Marlin, or are they intended for the old west load rating?

    I know these have been bored out to like 45-120 and 450 Nitro, so my assumption is they can handle quite a bit...

    Thanks for the info.

    Pedersoli makes quality firearms, I have owned several. I would call Pedersoli and ask them. Usually if there are restrictions on the ammunition you can use in one, they are labeled as such. My new S & W M638 is marked +P on the barrel, which means it can handle this higher pressure .38 Special ammo.
