In today’s video Granger Smith tries out some of my Hand Cannons! I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching!
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 […]
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 […]
This is the first trip with my new Encore. It is a New Hampshire TC before S&W bought them. It has a Bellm #3 trigger spring kit which typically results in a 2 1/2-3 lbs trigger pull. Bellm triple lock hammer extension, Bellm #1 oversized hung pin, Revolution Laminate Birch 12 Guage stock Set, SSK […]

With all the talk about powder coating and tumble lubing, what is the current state of traditional sizing and lubing with machines such as the RCBS LubeAMatic 2 or the good old Star? Turns out that there are enough rifle and gas check applications to assure that traditional cast bullet lubing is alive and well…Here’s […]

In this video I show you my handload in 45-70 Government I use for hunting wild hogs. We have to use ammo that delivers at least 2000 Joule of energy at a distance of 100m. With regular commercial loads in 45-70 this is not given most time. Because of this I create my own modern […]
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 […]

Shooting the .45-70 Gov't over the chronograph and some redneck science penetration tests with the 405gr Buffalo Bore Jacketed Flat Nose. Thank You for watching!
With the introduction of the Winchester Model 1886 the world of lever actions was changed forever. No previous lever action ever handled as well. No previous lever was as strong. No other lever action ever offered chamberings in such powerful cartridges as .45-70 to 50-110 WCF. The new standard. A new standard is set, and […]
Shooting the Marlin 1895 Guide Gun 18.5" Barrel with the 305gr Underwood Xtreme Penetrators.
Comparing the 45-70 to 45-90 WCF to 50-110 WCF in power, penetration, and expansion. I really enjoyed shooting these big bore cartridges. A lot of fun, great guns. I hope to get an 1895 Marlin soon so I can compare. Leverguns 50Most of our videos are about lever action rifles and other cowboy guns, including […]
Marlin 1895, Mossberg 500 and some updates
In this video I show most of the steps from start to finish on how I make one of my favorite milk jug exploding 45-70 loads. All the details should be in the video, but if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here and I will respond as quickly as I […]
1886 Winchester 50-110 WCF vs 1886 Browning 45-70 gov versus steel I-beam.
45-70 loaded to the max, 45-90 not a maximum load, 45-90 tried two different loads, these are very tough bullets and even at these outrageous velocities they performed very good, penetration was outstanding
TC Encore 45/70 barrels feature standard rifling, not micro groove rifling. My particular barrel shoots .458" cast bullets well. But how well do .4595" bullets perform? Can the bigger diameter bullets that shoot well in micro groove also shoot well in the TC Encore??
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 […]
