45-70 500 gr bullet sized .459 with round nose
« on: November 19, 2021, 09:50:01 PM »
anybody know where I can get some 500 grn, 45-70 bullets, round nose sized .459 for my original 1884 model Springfield trapdoor? Buffalo Arms shows the model number M1881 but they are out of stock and don't know if and when they will get anymore in stock.

Thanks

Thank you gentlemen for your replies. Looks like Chey Cast has almost the spitting image of the bullet I was getting from Buffalo Arms. Only difference I can see is that the round from Buffalo was a 500 grn bullet and Chey Cast's bullet is 512 grns. Don't imagine that will make any difference as long as both are sized at .459.

 Shouldn't make any difference, as long as the diameter of the bullet is good for your barrel and throat
