Description

This is our 45/70 load with superior terminal performance.  In 18″ barrels velocity is 1,770 FPS and the petals of the Maker Solid Copper Hollow Points (SCHP) spread out to 90 degrees at velocities achieved beyond 120 yards.  The profile of this bullet is safe in tubular magazines, yet its construction facilitates penetration on tough hide.  This and the awesome expansion is perfect for deer-sized game.

This load is not suitable in Trapdoor Springfields as the pressure exceeds what those old rifles were designed to handle.  It is safe in all modern 45/70 firearms.  The overall length allow proper cycling in lever action rifles and use in Magnum Research’s BFR Revolvers.

The impact velocity of the pictured bullet (see above) was 1,354 FPS.  This is achieved at the distance of 110 yds (with 18″ barrels).
