    45-70 in a Ruger number one.....420 grain super wide meplat. Cast her up with a high temp gun,...never thought about lubing it. Loaded the case with a magnum rifle primer and pushed the round into place. Had the common sense to stand behind a wing chair in my man cave to protect the family jewels in case of a ricochet . very heavy waxed cardboard box, with the local phone book about a 1.5" thick inside. Placed in on the other wing chair at the end of the room about 12-15 feet away and let her rip.....cleaned the box, phone book ,out the back of the box and a nice hole in the fabric of the other wing chair. Got the " you're and idiot " look from the better half. Be careful folks these could easily kill at close range. They're a hoot to shoot, but I had better come up with a better backstop, or I'll be sleeping outside with the dog.

    I put one 30 cal thru our steel garage door! Told the wife a piece of brass rod flew off the metal lathe and hit the door. (I am safe.......for now!)

    Yes, they do have a punch as short distances. Be careful. You are NOT shooting Airsoft here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To be honest, I didn't know the primers gave off fumes.
    But I definitely know what I'm doing the next time wifey and daughter leave me alone to my own resources...

    But if you were hunting an invasive species like collared dove... hmm. I may have just found what I can use while my son uses his air rifle!

    I used to shoot those< "Cowboy Action" plastic/wax bullets out of my 45/70. When the case lips would start cracking, I would drill the primer flash holes to 1/8th " and
    practice from the driveway, into the garage. They were very accurate out of a rifle and deadly on small pests.
