Dang I wanted to read that but something prevents me from going to the second page.. Good piece of history on the first page however! It got me thinking about how many different applications the 45/70 was used for. Here is one of my favorites, its application in a Gatling gun ..

From Wiki "The Model 1881 was designed to use the 'Bruce'-style feed system (U.S. Patents 247,158 and 343,532) that accepted two rows of .45/70 cartridges. While one row was being fed into the gun, the other could be reloaded, thus allowing sustained fire. The final gun required four operators. By 1876 the Gatling gun had a theoretical rate of fire of 1,200 rounds per minute, although 400 rounds per minute was more readily achievable in combat."

For a 19th century weapon that must have been cutting edge for its time..

That is a great article, it was what influenced me to get Jae Bok's Craters and Crater Lites in the first place. They have lived up to expectation.
If anyone has a problem getting it, just google Jae Bok Young bullets and continue through to the article section.
