What make of brass are you guys finding to your liking when loading for the 45/70? I have access to Winchester, Remington, Starline, Hornady, Bertram, Federal and Buffalo Bore.

Wow, you must be lucky to be able to pick from all that! I like the *---* the best, followed by Remington. If I'm loading the gummy tips, I'll use Hornady factory brass simply because its already short. For me *---* lasts the longest. I notice that the other brands start splitting near the case mouths a bit sooner.

buffalo bore uses a small rifle primer not large rifle primer so I do not reload that at this point. I can only find the rem around here lately so that works fine for me.

Hi Quaticman, I bought a large supply of Starline brass when I bought my 45-70 and have been happy with it. It is a bit harder than some other brands, and I have to anneal the necks to get optimal results for my loads, but it is good brass and has served me well.
