I use standard Large Rifle primers to ignite Trail Boss smokeless powder with no problems at all.

Using Magnum primers with BP is recommended. Are you using filler on top of the BP? I've heard that you can use shotgun primers but do not know if they are a "fit". Never tried them on a 45-70 case.

The .458-.459 bullet is my choice for the TD. Unless your bore is well worn I would not push a .461 slug through a TD. This may explain the residue in the bore.
