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 […]

45-70 Range Trip with New Powder

TC Encore SSK 45-70 with IMR-3031   Well guys, I took the Encore out for a spin, and on the recommendation of Rebel and Georgiaboy44 I got a couple pounds of IMR3031 to try. QuickLOAD predicted no pressure concerns for an Encore that theoretically could be rechambered to 458WinMag, so I did a ladder from 49.3 […]

Powder Coating The Lee 457 450 Cast Bullet

The Lee 450 grain flat base bullet for the 45/70 was designed for those shooters who preferred a heavier bullet than the 405 grainer, but didn’t want to go all the way to the 500+ grain bullets. We casted this mold a week ago. But because of the minimal grease grooves, let’s powder coat these […]

My last time using Hodgdon Trail Boss

Hodgdon Trail Boss is a great smokeless powder for cartridges like the old 45-70 Government or subsonic load in .308 Winchester. The large volume of this powder makes it possible to fill up a large case for a safe powder burning without the high pressures that would come into play with other smokeless powders. Thanks […]
