45-70 Ammo

.45-70 ammunition is a former military cartridge developed by the US Army and used in the "Trapdoor" Springfield Model 1873. Effective against man-sized targets out to 300 yards, the .45-70 was a powerful cartridge for its time and was used in both rifles and Gatling guns.

.45-70 cartridges fire heavy 300 or 400 grain bullets at muzle velocities in the 1,500 to 2,000 feet per second range. This gives them excellent close-range performance but significant drop-off at a distance. As a result, modern use of this caliber typically involves hunting in areas with dense vegetation; in these environments, the .45-70 can be used against everything from deer and hogs to bears.

Despite its length, the .45-70 has also been used in revolvers such as the Magnum Research BFR. Shooters of these "hand cannons" must be steady-handed and strong of wrist!

    Whether you're toting a Marlin Model 1895 into the woods or carrying a Magnum Research BFR as a backup, these .45-70 Govt rounds from Black Hills will put some bite behind your big bore bark. Black Hills ammo is manufactured in Dakota and has been loved by the shooting community since the company's birth in the 1980s. They've built a stellar reputation for exacting specifications in service to big game hunters, high-volume competitors, and military snipers. This particular ammo is from their Authentic Cowboy Action lineup and, like all of their brands, receives attentive inspection before leaving the door.

    Each round features a heavyweight 405-grain lead flat nose (LFN) projectile that is loaded to travel at 1,250 feet per second; this lends the round light recoil which is appropriate for match purposes. The projectile is contained within a reloadable brass casing which also hosts clean-burning propellant and a non-corrosive Boxer primer. The flat nose bullet does well to create proper circular holes in paper targets for easy zero confirmation at the range while the bare lead material does offer limited expansion into medium-sized game targets with thin skin.
