Re: Hornady 45-70 brass
Yes, the Leverevoluion brass is shorer. I believe that this is the only load Hor. has for a 45-70, but if you look at the std. 350gr. flatpt. load for a 450Mar. & stand it up beside the Leverevolution load, the std. load has the regular length brass & the Leverevolution brass is alot shorter. The pointed bullet is longer & to meet overall length requirements & it would be hard to seat the bullet much deeper. So, the brass is not shorter just because it is Hornady. As a friend pointed out to me, the short brass
may work out OK if you loaded a bullet with a long nose profile like the 350Speer.
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.
