 Thank you for all the thoughtful responses.  It appears that it is as I suspected,  and as I had hoped.
More questions about black powder are forthcoming as I am flirting with the notion of changing up my entire loading procedure and going entirely to black powder. I must be nuts!
Stay tuned....

The arsenals 45-55-405 carbine load used card wads to take up the 15 grain difference from the 45-70-405 issued for the rifle

Charlie 
I heard that (or read it) do you know how much wad they used ? I figure you would get at least half the difference by just using less compression,
One big wad ? two or several?   interested if you have seen one of these dismantled ?
cheers

Oh, and the worst part about wearing a mask while grocery shopping, is not being able to easily lick your finger tips to open those plastic produce bags.

Common sense doesn't work these days, what we need is uncommon sense.

Thanks, Capt.

You're absolutely right. Doing two at the same time is best. And I also put alcohol on the leather before dying, too. It helps even the color absorption.

I will sometimes wipe down the project with a rag and alcohol, to lighten the dye, but, it doesn't always match. When doing two, your best bet is at the same time.

And Will, I like me a crossdraw rig, nice work as always.

 :)  Ah Gosh  ;)

I'm not exactly a connoisseur do cartridge, however, other than the "gallery" loads mentioned by Dave T, I know of no reduced loads.  The only real reductions I know of were the "step down" to 45 Schofield or 45 government.  44 Russian was a step back and 38-40 was a little lighter.  All the period cartridge cases I have taken apart were all full cases.
