Lee, Checking two random boxes from my collection one carbine 1-79 45-55-405 velocity 1150 fps. one rifle box 45-70-405 4-81 velocity 1339 fps. they were very critical of the velocity range and the ordnance note indicates they fired rounds from production during the day to adjust the powder chargers. This from ordnance note 118 October 31, 1879 TEST OF CARTRIDGES. Hope this helps.
