408gr of 45-70 Gov’t

The rifle has been rethroated for my Accurate 46-415S bullet. We took it to the range and shot the upper end for a possible hunting load… from what I saw before, while hopeful, I was dubious of whether or not I would actually find a HARD hitting hunting load…

Well, 58.8gr of IMR-3031 was the 100% load density, and most honestly did not do well, but right before the end we had 56.8gr of the lid IMR-3031 and magic! Over 2000fps, and while not your typical bench cartridge, it seems to be a great hunting round…

I will have to get a soft shooting target load together as well… But that will be another day!
