Re: U.S. 1875 Springfield Trapdoor Rifle .45-70

If your Springfield is actually a M1875 I wouldn't be shooting it in the first place. (The M1875 is the Officers Model and is quite valuable. Are you sure it's not a M1873?) As for LEVEREvolution, It looks like it would be too hot for the trapdoor action and jacketed bullets are generally a no-no in trapdoors. Buffalo Arms makes lead BP loads that should be ideal in the Springfields.
