20rds – 45-70 Govt. Fiocchi 405gr. LRNFP Ammo Details

Sure, the 45-70 Government’s absolutely beefy bullet may make its long range trajectory look like Enron’s stock prices circa 2001, but there’s a lot to love about the old cartridge. Just the history behind it makes it a joy to shoot -- this is a round that our army made good use of during the Spanish-American War, and lord knows how many settlers put bison on their families’ dinner tables thanks to the 45-70 Government. If you share a certain fondness for this classic caliber, then you’re going to love how this round by Fiocchi treats your Trapdoor.

This round has the same 405 grain projectile that Springfield Armory gave it back in 1873. Its bullet is the same as the cowboys would have implemented as well: a lead round nose flat point. (The name of such a bullet may seem a bit oxymoronic, but hey -- that’s okay with us.) The bullet’s profile will benefit your antique rifle’s ability to feed reliably just like it did back when it was designed, and the wallop it packs combined with its ability to deform makes this bullet as good for target practice as it is hunting essentially any beast that roams the earth.

Even a purist will appreciate this round’s smokeless powder and non-corrosive primer. And if you handload, this box of ammo will give you the 20 brass casings you need to practice your science.
