300 grain Bullet in 45-70
300 grain Bullet in 45-70-Someone wanted to know how a 300 grain bullet would shoot in a 45-70 rifle and some one answered it would be all right with 50 grains of powder, but he will find it will not hold up very well if he wants it for shooting game. I have used the 285 grain bullet with a hollow point which reduced the weight to 260 grains. This with about 85 grains of powder is good for woodchucks and is pretty accurate up to 200 yards. I have not shot it any farther. The 330 grain Winchester bullet with a hollow point is very accurate and a great killer, and is a good bullet to use in the 45-70 Springfield rifle as this bullet has one more band than the 285 grain and the Springfield has only three grooves.
