Thanks for the information Kid! I haven't fired a 50-70 for over 35 years when I used a low smokeless load that was extremely accurate. Can't say I've ever used a black powder load then come to think of it. I wouldn't use anything else now, being older and wiser. I've got the same 450 grain Dixie bullet mold that I used then. Guess I'd better order some brass and large rifle primers and get ready to shoot my Model 1870. Come to think of it, I haven't shot a 45-70 since over 30 years ago either. That was in an old converted Sharps 3 band 1863 military rifle that had the name of J.P. Lower stamped on the underside of the hinge pin ear that rested against the receiver. I bought it for $500.00 back in the late seventies. Thanks again! Fred
