W-W brass, Lee crimp die used. Heavy crimp needed. Shot from a Marlin 1895 new model. The bullet is a "Remington JSP flat nose" with a Meplat of .320. The round is underloaded and can be beefed up more but I think that it is very accurate and powerful as it is. Good luck and good hunting

Use ONLY in strong, modern guns! Also comes from the Hodgdon #27 manual. In my 1895SS, it kicks like a Missouri mule, but it has good trajectory and great penetration.

use with dacron wad. Shoots very well in my original 45-70 trapdoor carbine - duplicates black powder pressure. Have killed many deer and an elk or two with this load.

Load worked up for hogs in brush country Florida. Very accurate 5 round groups produce single hole. Velocity is not as important as accuracy. The bullet is beveled base, with heavy crimp. Meplat is .335 inches. Hard cast slug with no leading problems. This slug has been up to 2000 fps with no leading problems.

This is an in between medium/heavy loading for the 45/70 in a Marlin. I have seen and used hotter. In my current LTD IV this is a killer on both ends, its is the worst kicking gun I own.

Using a SHARPS rifle, barrel front sight with peep and MARBLES fully adjustable tang sight, this is one of the most accurate lead bullets that I have had the pleasure to shoot! At 175 yards it is fantastic!
