That's the headstamp on the 45-70 brass that I got from a local gentleman in trade for a set of dies. He said he always wanted a 45-70, but never got a round-tuit, so I ended up with the brass.
I did some research on the headstamp and I find that this brass was originally for a "line throwing blank"??
Has anyone here used any of this brass for standard 45-70 loads, black powder or smokeless?
Do you see any problems with loading it for cast boolits? Other than the headstamp, it looks normal and the case measures 2.090".
Thanks in advance for the help!!
P.S. ---- No, I haven't got a 45-70 yet, but a guys got to plan for the future - right??
