45/70 Government 400gr Soft Point Flat Nose 500Rds



45/70 Government 400gr Soft Point Flat Nose

45-70 Government 400gr SPFN

This is our all-purpose 45/70 hunting load.  This load is capable of cleanly taking deer, elk, and moose-sized game.  The Speer soft point is proven to expand uniformly while providing more than adequate penetration on all but the largest brown bears.  The cartridge overall length is < 2.545″ so they run smoothly through all lever guns.

Recoil with this 400 grain jacketed bullet falls between our trapdoor safe loads and our High Power load.  It can be described as a moderate push- compared to the more abrupt recoil felt when driving a lighter bullet significantly faster.

  • 1,610 FPS (18″)
  • 400 grain Soft Point Flat Nose Speer
  • 500 Rounds
  • New Starline Brass
  • Hodgdon (smokeless) Powder
  • 45/70 Government (modern and strong actions only)

Like all of our 45/70 loads- accuracy is impressive and reliability is unmatched.

Note: This load will not chamber freely in Henry single shot rifles due to relationship between throat length and bullet profile.
