    i will begin loading for the above rifle next week.

    24" ballard rifled barrel.

    i plan on shooting cast bullets at under 1400fps MV

    i'm up in the air on bullet weight though i have a hundred which were given to me of unknown weight.

    i have read that reloader #7 is a good powder & trail boss.

    any 45/70 shooter/loader want to chime in.........

    I'm not familiar with either of those powders but I do know that you're going to need to find the weight of those boolits to look up load data.
