Re: 45-70 ball loads with black powder

O.K., first question. WHY?
Second question. Have you tried using Winchester or some other brand of brass?? Starline brass is brittle and should be annealed before loading for best results. The Winchester brass is softer and slightly thinner than Starline. Are you loading to 70 grains of powder and how big a ball are you using?
Please make very sure that the casing is not lodged in the bore.
