Loads for 45/70

Just worked a load up for my 1895G

Using a 430-gr WFN GC by Rim Rock Bullets, Ronan MT

430-gr WFN GC, .4585 dia, Federal LMRP with positive crimp.

46.0 gr of IMR 3031

1) 1700 fps L
2) 1703 fps
3) 1714 fps
4) 1725 fps H

SD: .29
Load: 46.0 gr IMR 3031
Avg FPS: 1710.5
TKV: 48.12
ME: 2793.08 Ft/Lbs

I haven't chrono'd the 405-gr non gas check that they also make but was getting ready to this week-end.
