I shoot LaserCast bullets in 350 and 405 in my two 45-70's. They both shoot moa and hit like a ton of bricks.

The cast bullets are good but if you want to shoot jacketed
bullets here are some I recomend.

Barns "Original" in 300 and 400gr Semi Spitzer and
The Speer 400gr flat nose or the 350gr hotcore
( It has a very small flat nose).

The 350gr hot core would be my choice for Elk and
Buffalo and they can be loaded to around 2100 ft/sec
(In modern rifles)and 2300 in the Browning and Ruger
and over 3000ft/lbs energy at the muzzel, 2000ft/lbs
at 300 yards and 1500 ft/lbs at 500 yards .

Plenty for Elk size game.

The other .458 bullets ar made for the higher velocity
rounds like the 458 Winchester and the 460 Weatherby.

Some bullets will say 45/70 .458 dia on the box and these
are for 45/70 only.(The jackets are two thin for the modern
cartriges like the 458 Win and will shed the jackets when
leaving the barrel) at high velocity.

I Hope This Helps
