Good for you! That should be an excellent cartridge from all I've read. Enjoy the new rifle!

Is that with their 18-twist barrel (I think it's 18-twist)? What length?

Good for you. Trust you've got somewhere you can 'stretch its legs' once it arrives ? I gather this is the the Remington straight at 2 6/10" ? Can you get away with necked down 45/100 cases for this or do they require more specialised brass ? Let us know how she runs. If we can't shoot... I'm quite happy to read about others that can.

JB,

The .44-90 ST is I believe 2 4/10" and is made from .45-90 brass. It is supposed to be a dream to work with and very accurate. Those using it in competition have worked very hard at keeping it a secret.

Ernie Stallman was a big advocate of that Remington cartridge.

It is a very good cartridge.

It is the 2.4 in version based on a necked down 45-90 case. One pass through a 40-70 straight (from 45-70) does the trick. That die is bored straight through so serves both.

The rifle is C. Sharps rendition of a Roughrider and has a heavyweight barrel that will bring weight nearly 12 lbs. 30 in 18 twist barrel. No frills except an upgrade in wood and the pewter forend.

I run 45/90 brass thru my 44 Maynard sizer and it comes out perfect. And it prefers OE 1F and pistol orimers.
