Re: 45/70 Case Length Question

OK, here's a follow up. I purchased a batch of new Starline 45/70 cases: all fell into a range of 2.995 to 2.10. Cases were annealed, neck sized, expanded to .457 and deburred. Primer pockets were also uniformed. Shooting with a 540 gr. Jones Creedmore bullet, 65 gr. Swiss 1 1/2 with .030 Walters wa...

Re: 45/70 Case Length Question

Again Thanks to all who responded. I did find some significant leading beyond the throat after shooting this weekend. Using these suggestions I will do some testing and see what variations seem to work. Since I have been shooting this rifle (Shiloh) for some 5000+ rounds with good results I suspecte...

Re: 45/70 Case Length Question

First, thanks for thr replies. All good points.
As to the questions... the rifle(s) are Shilohs, factory chambers.
I FL resize
Bullets just touch the lands.
One grease groove is exposed.

What I realy question is what is the optimum case length?

45/70 Case Length Question

What is the optimum case length for 45/70 brass shooting grease groove bullets? I understand SAAMI data to be case length of 2.10 (-.005). Do most shooters trim back to 2.o95 or ?? I have experienced some leading recently and I suspect case length to be the issue. Shooting PJ 45001 1/20 with SPG lub...

Re: .22 BPCR Silhouette Targets

GS
Go to the home page of this web site and scroll WAYYYYY down until you see Dave Crossnoe's rules for the 22 "BPCR" matches.
Dave has included scale drawings of the targets. Most of us in OK and TX shoot this scale... more fun than the law allows.
Good Luck

Re: .50-70 Pedersoli Long Range

Easy cartridge to load. Try the Lyman 512142 FN at 515 Gr. I use 68-70 Gr. of GOEX Cartridge and a Federal 215 primer in Bell or Starline cases. This is an MOA load and will kill anything your liable to run into in the US. The gov't bullet 512141 at 450 gr. is also good for shooting fun... again 70 ...

Re: MVA spirit level verses Shaver spirit level

Hate to take you away from the MVA-Shaver choice BUT I've used both and found the answer with a Baldwin front sight. Securely locks in the insert (like the Shaver) far better than the MVA. Well protected (internal) spirit level, and nothing to hang up on in a case like the Shaver or MVA. Price is $1...

The high-power silhouette range is usually open for shooting at the sighter (swingers) targets along with a buffalo gong at 1025 meters.
Have fun

I use them in one rifle for a chicken load: 60 Gr. GX CTG in RP case with BR2 primers.

I found that the bullet takes too much case space to get a useful long range powder charge seated. This is in a Shiloh Sharps.

I'd suggest you try various loads and see what your rifle(s) will do.

Rusty is my shooting partner so he won't get mad if I answer.
His Shaver unit will only fit a case based on 45/70 cartridges. (45/70-90-110 etc and 45-65).
I have one built by Shaver that is specific to the 40/70 and it is different.
