Hi, I found a new BFR in .50 S&W at a local store for a lot less than normal market price. They are closing out the store. I had my mind set for a 45-70, I have a M1895, but try as I may, I can't find anything about loads for this pistol. The BFR people list how good the 45-70 is, and then never do a proper ballistics on it, but do say that the 450 Marlin smokes. I load for the 45-70, and know it can put the Marlin out to pasture. Rifle loads will fill the air with unburned powder, so unless I can locate a listing of some good starting loads, I intend to buy the Smith cartridge. Any ideas where to go??
