Reply | Edit | Del All .45-70 loads questions?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello:

Can anyone suggest a .45-70 load that is relatively inexpensive and easy on the shoulder?
Is cowboy ammo a good choice?

Thanks,

Terry

Do you reload? Or are you looking for off-the-shelf ammo?
Far as I know, the very downloaded 'Cowboy' ammo seems to be just what you are looking for. Everything else I'm familiar with is a fairly powerful loading.
If you do reload, I can retrieve some loading data from my manuals for you.

The cowboy ammo seems to be the way to go. I do not reload but perhaps someday I will get in to that. Thanks for the input.
