someone more informed than I could prob weigh in on this topic better but the 45-70, 45-90, 45-110 cartridges denoted .45 caliber and the charge of black powder.Bax, so when exactly are these "good ol days"? I been kicking around for quite some time and we always used a scale to weigh powder. Ya don't just dump in a bunch!
to, two, too, their, there, they're, witch dew ewe youse ware?
Hah! I'm flattered, but I've never loaded for the old school BP rounds. I have told my wife if I draw a swamp donkey tag, I plan on getting a 45-70. I'm trying to decide if I want a replica 1886, a real original 1886 (not as expensive as one might think), or a Ruger #1 in 45-70... I love those #1's and you can go pretty far +P due to the incredibly strong action.
