I'll be getting a 45-70 here shortly. Like every other round I shoot, I'll be loading for this one also.
It'll is a single shot
Black bear and Roosevelt elk, out to 150 yds, will be the primary game.
45/70 single shot NEF/H&R
I'm not the least bit familiar with loading for this mule.
The two bullets that are of interest are the 350 gr Hornady round nose and the 350 gr Speer flat nose in front of 52 to 56 grs of H4198.
Any feed back on this combination would be greatly appreciated. As I'm not familiar with loading the round.
Seeing as how it's a single shot would crimping still be required?
Are there any powder preferences?
I've calculated approximately 38 ft/lbs of recoil. It won't be an all day shooter but, it should be very effective out to 230 yds with the Speer's.
