A while back I cross referenced blacksmiths and farriers that were present in both 1874 and 1876, There were 11 blacksmiths 5 of which were KIA and 2 medal of honor winners. Farriers numbered 12 with 4 KIA which included Vincent Charley left behind and wounded on the futile effort that was stopped at Weir Point.
In the 74 BHE camps very few fired 45-55s were found compared to the numerous unfired ones as Custer had issued orders of no firing. Some fired .45 Colts and a few 50-70s were present.
