I have a nice .348 Win mod. 71, I like the rifle and the caliber suits me but my mind wonders to the many improved versions of the std. 348 Win...The Imp 348 doesn't seem to change much more than recoil so Im thinking 416 Ackley, 450 Ackley, or whatever...AT 85 this recoil business is raising its ugly head to some degree..I handle the .375 and 9.3x62 well enough, so tell me about the felt recoil of these mod. 71 conversions, or should I just keep it a .348 win which is nothing more than a 30-06 in sheeps clothing..

The best is to keep it original.

Other options are 500 Linebaugh, .50 Alaskan, .50 Gov.

If you have an orignal 71? it should weigh around 8lbs,I would keep it as is or just run a 348 improved if its not a collector,I have a 71 in 348 imp & I like the gun,I also have other 71's,35-348,416-348,450-348 & a 475-348,all these rifles have been re barreled & are heavier,unfortunately hunting for me has been very limited the last 5-6 years & my guns have not seen much use besides the range,the 416 conversion showed 2200 fps on the chrono with a 400 gr bullet the last time I was at the range,that gun is 9lbs & recoil is pretty stiff.

Ray,

I would keep it as it is and find you a nice Win 1895 in 405 Win. I am bias as I own three in 30-06, 35 Whelen and the 405 win. The 405 speaks with authority with the 360 gr Northfork @ 2200. What's not to like about a .40 cal lever gun.

PS
The 411-348 would have identical case capacity to the 405 Win.

I was buying a model 71 a couple years ago and the seller had one original deluxe rifle in .348 and another in 450 or 50 Alaskan (can't remember which). I figured the .348 would be a great short to medium range elk rifle and the Alaskan would be the same thing with lots more recoil. Bought the .348.

I found some bonded core Kodiak 250 gr. .348 bullets, Think I'll just try them on elk and deer this year. MIght consider a 348 IMP in the future, The 71 isn't designed for excessive recoil and I wonder where the logical cut off would be as to recoil..A 416 is appealing but again recoil comes into play I fear..I can handle a lot of recoil, but I find it distasteful.. old
