Details

This 45-70 Government cartridge hails from the Black Hills of South Dakota. Based in Rapid City, Black Hills Ammunition has long specialized in making military and match grade ammo. They also pay respect to their area’s frontier roots with their classic cowboy rounds.

This cartridge features a 405 grain lead flat point projectile. It shoots just like the classic load, which came out nearly a decade before the words “full metal jacket” meant anything. With its broad tip this bullet doesn’t risk a magazine misfire in a lever action rifle, and it transfers a lot of energy simultaneously at the moment of impact to anchor game fast.

This round isn’t totally historically accurate. It’s loaded with smokeless propellant instead of black powder, so it won’t engulf you in a belch of smoke when your fire it. It’s also equipped with a non-corrosive Boxer primer that will keep your old rifle rust-free, and its new production brass shell casing is worth every second you’d spend reloading it.

A: Hi Joe! I reached out to Black Hills Ammunition on Friday to see if they can provide me with that data. I'll update this comment the second I hear back from them. In the meantime I'm afraid I can do no better than say they load within SAAMI specs. *Update: I just heard back from my contact at Black Hills. They do not exceed 19,000 psi when they load this ammo.
