A good place to start on working up loads for a trapdoor would be the Third Edition of "Loading Cartridges For The Original 45-70 Springfield Rifle and Carbine" by JS and Pat Wolfe. Spencer Wolf spent a good deal of time working with the trapdoor and following his advice in loading techniques will get you very good results. We lost Spencer in 1993 but Pat Wolf has revised and expanded Spencer's original work. Here's the address:

Wolf's Western Traders 30516 Erin Drive Lacombe, LA 70445

Pat Wolf (985) 882-3401
