    Re: 45/70 paper pached bullets

    Redhawk1,

    I have been shooting PPB's in my 45-70 1895CB and my 1874 Sharps, and like all other calibers that I reload for I use different weights of bullets. One in particular is the cast pistol bullets that weigh 270 grains. I patch them and load as you would your PPB's only these I have loaded down with pistol powder and they are quiet and travel at 770FPS, this load is carried in a separate case for small game that I come across in the field. I have also loaded other weights all the way to 530 grains. This winter I will be working on PPB's for the 7mm Mauser, 22 Hornet and 338 Winchester magnum. I have already developed loads in my 30-30 with PPB's. The length of the bullet should not matter although the longer the better for accuracy. The shortest PPB's that I have ever heard of are the 22-10 which would have been very short in overall length.

    Re: 45/70 paper pached bullets

    I guess the reason I loaded paper patched bullets was, they just go will with the Sharps rifles.
    I find load development easier with hard cast bullets in my Marlins, and a lot less work. I never use smokeless in my paper patch cartridges.
    If you're going to make a hole, make it a big one.

    Try the smokeless, I do both in the Sharps but prefer smokeless for time. I can wait a day or more to clean if using smokeless but if I use BP it is a must do now I do like the accuracy from good BP loads but I can get the same with smokeless.
    I have shot BP in my 1895 but was very careful and cleaned it very good. The only thing I have shot in the 1895 this year has been PPB's with smokeless powder. I shot a mule deer buck with my 1895CB and a Lee 500 grain FN that I turned in to a PPB, pictures and details are in the paper patch bullet forum in the Lodge.

    Re: 45/70 paper pached bullets

    Here is a great link from Brent Danielson on:

    Making, Loading, Shooting, and Hunting with Paper Patched Bullets

    When I was into BPCR I followed Brents way of doing things.

    Re: 45/70 paper pached bullets

    I agree, Joe. That's a good site for paper patching, though it's a little different in the way we do it for our leverguns.... too much paper to get caught in the loading port.

    Thanks Montanan.

    Re: 45/70 paper pached bullets

    That is true but being experienced loaders each of us should know to adjust the wrap of our paper jacketed bullets to be either off of the chamber just kissing the rifling, or in the use of lever guns, just out of the mouth of the case being loaded. By accident I seated some paper jackets just inside the case and they performed fine, but I like the paper just visible for identification.

    Thanks, Joe

    I used to use paper cartages in my .54 shilo sharps
    "As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents more and
    more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day
    the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the
