The .45-70 rifle cartridge, also known as . 45-70 Government, was developed at the U.S. Army's Springfield Armory for use in the Springfield Model 1873, which is known to collectors as the "Trapdoor Springfield". The new cartridge was a replacement for the stop-gap .50-70 Government cartridge which had been adopted in 1866, one year after the end of the American Civil War.
3 boxes of 20 45-70 HSM cowboy loads. Bought the ammo thinking I would buy the gun but my eyes were bigger than my wallet and common sense took over. Selling for what I bought at.
$35 a box
face to face close to Albany.
I have four boxes of it sitting in the safe (80 rounds). I think I bought it back in 2017 or 2018, but it's fine and been kept dry. I thought I was going to acquire a lever-action in .45-70 but have changed my mind.

I have for sale a Thompson/Center Contender "Super 16" Carbine barrel in .45-70 caliber.
Nice barrel in excellent condition. Originally bought it for hunting wild hogs when I lived in California. This is an earlier version that has a slightly heavier/thicker Muzzle Tamer brake and a...
can be a RPITA for a number of reasons, but the biggest one, for me, is trying to get a GOOD load of BP in that seemingly HUGE case.
The eponymous 70gr of FFg just ain't gonna happen, especially with modern cartridge cases and their somewhat rounded inner volumes. 60gr? Nope, even using a...
Howdy gals & gents, before you get too excited about the topic, let me say that my question is about a rifle, not the caliber. (I already am a fan of the caliber.)
I have an original model 1886 Winchester chambered in .45-70 with octagonal barrel which, by its serial number, was manufactured...
I am new to this forum and in fact, am a Southerner living down in Mobile, Alabama but a friend on another forum recommended this would be a good place to get a bit information about a project I want to under-take. I have a .45-70 in a double rifle, a Henry Golden Boy, and a Savage 219B...
