I cast and roll my own so I could shoot it a little cheaper. I just don't have the cash to get one.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

Bond Arms at one time made a 45-70 derringer. Remember seeing a youtube video where each shot was followed by a bunch of obscenities

As an unnamed amateur ballistician once remarked, "If the gun weighed the same as the bullet, it would be just as deadly to the shooter as the shootee."

I guess we're getting closer to that nowadays.

I'm not signing this one so I can remain unnamed.

If anything gets me back into reloading it's 45-70.
In the meantime a gun shop here was closing a while back and I bought most of their left over 45-70 ammo stock real cheap. Got enough to last awhile plus I'll have a bunch of brass for if or when I get back into reloading.

If you do reload 45-70 be aware that Hornady Leverevolution brass is cut a touch shorter than normal. Due to the flex tip bullet they use they had to shorten the brass to keep the overall length the same as normal 45-70 ammo.
