A word of caution:
Going to a 45/90,45/100 or any of the larger cases and using smokeless could be dangerous.
The reason for going to a larger case is to increse
velocity with black powder or a clone(like tripple 7)
The factory 45/70 loads are between 1200ftps&1300ftps
that use smokeless powder for safety in old rifels or replica's.
Only modern rifles like the browning or ruger can use
high pressure loads.
If you dont like black powder use something like tripple
7, My 45/110 pushes a 450gr barnes x to 1900ftps with 95
grs of tripple 7 and does not fowl the barrel.
I have shot up to 620gr cast bullets using tripple 7
and it worked well, best group to date is a 5 shot 1.137 at
100rds and 5 shots at just over 9" at 600rds .
So if you intend to shoot smokeless theres no need
to go any larger than a 45/70.
Pedersoli does not recomend the use of smokeless on any
of there larger(45/90,45/100,45/110 or 45/120s).
So be careful [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
