    Well my load was store bought. Hha. Winchester silver ballistic 300 grain
    i did get the larger brush. They only had a short pistol version but it is a perfect fit. The .475 brush was the way to go.

    Plus with current CL scalping prices on 223 ammo, it's almost the same no matter which gun I shoot! Haha and the stores have plenty 45-70 in stock.

    Don't know if you reload, but straight wall cases like 45-70 are real easy to reload. Save your empties, if you don't reload, lots of guys do and you can sell them.

    The only thing different from bottle neck cases and straight wall is that you have to "bellmouth" the case and then crimp it over into the groove in the bullet. Especially true in tubular mag guns. Keeps the bullet from being pushed back into the case when its pushed into the magazine and kept under pressure.

    Good point and very true CC , in tube fed rifles the rounds are under constant compression from the spring. That in itself may or may not not push the bullet back into the case but the recoil most likely will without a good crimp. Also bullet push back or movement will most likely be worse on the first few rounds loaded into the tube.

    You definately don't want to have to deal with a "stovepipe" as we call it in cowboy shooting. All our rifles are tube mags and you really have to be careful. It is a painful lesson, lots of disassembly and cussing.

    I've got the cussing part down. Seems if you cuss it out before you start everything goes perfect. If not you loose your Christianity half way through and say things sailors have never heard. Haha
    last time that happened I was changing out rotors on my truck, my wife later informed me the children down the street were going to need therapy now...
