    for 45-70? I got no idea? I bought it for a Ruger Old Army...poor performer...but I found it worked better putting it in the cylinder upside-down (flat side out)...but even then, it performed worse than round ball. I've never owned a 45-70,...

    DO NOT reduce H110 or Win 296 by 60% again, I will state, there are too many "exceptions" to have a valid rule of thumb.

    The Die doesn't "seat" on the top of the die hole. The bevel on the bottom of the die "seats" against the bottom of the Die hole. I bet there is some crud on the inside beveled area, where the Die is suppose to mate to.

    Tough luck, LLoyd. Hope everything works out well. Dilantin and phenobarbitrol (Sp?) were the meds of choice 70+ years ago when my sister came down w/epilepsy, age 1 year. And I believe that dilantin, or a derivative, is still the med of choice....

    About the time when Obama moved into the White House, I swapped 7 cords of seasoned firewood (hardwood) for a stock 3" S&W 657 ...Best trade I ever made, still have it, and love it...but I do prefer my 6" mod 57 for targets and plinking.
