Re: 45-70 ball loads with black powder

well if your shooting 457's there is some of the problem.. least for who ever is going to shoot them. The old guns mostly need something 459/460 in size. 457's will keyhole (normal 405 grain)about every time. Now in a repo gun probably OK, but not in any original I've ever shot, and have shot my fair share. The problem with a 457 is its undersized, and would not hit the broad side of a barn!
