    Anyone Try RCBS 44-370FN (.446) in 45-70 sharps?

    I just realized today that I have the RCBS (SPanish Mauser) mold 44-370FN that I use for paperpatching my 45 in-line... Don't know why it should not work in a 45-70 as well..(I guess the question is " How well?"). the rifle is a Shiloh Sharps... anyone have any luck with it or any favorite loads they would be willing to share?

    Thanks in advance,

    Perhaps my learning skills have diminished in my senior years.. 50 years ago I could read something once and then "have it"... Now I read it about three times, do it a couple of times and then... "have it" only about half the time.

    Whoops I see you are talking about 45-70????

    The bore riding section of that bullet is too large and will not chamber in my Shiloh 44-77. Several have bought Accurate Molds with similar design as the RCBS but with the max diameter on the nose at .434-436.
