Accurate loads can be developed for just about any BP cartridge. The 45-70 & 40-65 cartridges are easy to develope loads for and much data exists for them. The end result depends on your skill, both at the loading bench and at the range. Rbump

:arrow: Are you trying to save weight by using a shorter barrel? If so recoil/muzzle blast might affect your shooting. There are several barrel configurations available ranging from light/skinny, to tapered or full octagon, to heavy round. I have a 45-70 Shiloh business rifle with a heavy round 28" ...
