Thanks Ernie for the offer! I do have an update, which still leaves some questions. Again this is my first 45-70 much less trapdoor so I did not have any other cartridges to "test". (I am sure I will catch grief for this :) ) but I went out and bought a box of the 405 grain Remington JSP "For use in all rifles" (not what I really want) but it chambers fine!!! So the problem is in the new BP cartridge bullets.

I want to start reloading and try to stick to the 500 grain bullets and BP but I am concerned to buy a mold or order a bag of bullets and have the same problem as I did from the preloaded 500 grainers.

Does anyone think this a bad lot? Does anyone have any good suggestions for 500 grain RN molds/ pre-made bullets?

I may still take you up on the offer Ernie to see if that bullet would work.
