Brand: Buffalo Bore 8C/20Non-returnable item. We will not accept any returns on this item.
Buffalo Bore Magnum ammo has all the features a hunter could want. This example, in .45-70 Government, is a prime choice for big game hunters. It's loaded with a 350 grain jacketed flat nosed bullet which it fires at 2100 fps. It's an excellent round for taking down moose, bear, or buffalo.
The bullet we utilize in this load is very tough and gives only a small to moderate sized mushroom (about .60 cal) and because of the smallish mushroom, it penetrates very deep -- about 4 feet in muscles and bone and as such is a great bullet for use on dangerous game and on smaller game too as it does expand some. This load is the most versatile of our 45-70 loads.
Never use this ammo in ANY original or reproduced "Trap Door" action as the design is far too weak.
Buffalo Bore .45-70 ammunition is externally identical to SAAMI spec 45-70 ammo, but internally it generates FAR more power and pressure. So, the .45-70 ammo will fit into ANY .45-70 firearm, but is not safe in every 45-70 firearm. Its use should be limited to the following firearms: All Marlin 1895 (1895 Marlins are all model 336 actions, chambered in .45-70) iterations made since 1972, all Browning 1885 and 1886 copies, New England Arms Handi Rifle, T/C Encore, ALL falling block actions made of modern steel such as Ruger #1 and #3, Shiloh, Christian and Persoli Sharps, all Winchester 1886 iterations made since 1915 and all Siamese Mauser bolt actions.
