Hello everyone,

This is my first thread question and discussion. I bought an 18.5” Model 1895GBL .45-70 Gov’t (but also thinking about buying a CB later). After arguing with Cabela’s gun Manager on wasting 60 rounds due to them selling me a scope they said would work (really my fault for believing them and not doing my research), I finally picked up a scope (Leopold FX-II Scout IER 2.5x28mm) made for it.

My father and I want information about a specific round.


North Fork .458-350 CPS. If anyone has used it, would you mind sharing your load data, Lee-crimp or roll-crimp, powder type and amount, ect…? Found a forum post from “reflex264” on this round (linked). Not sure what to think of it. Would not mind some more info from others.

New to reloading yet not new to failing thousands of times before finding the right way from experience.



Thank You in advance

I haven't used that bullet but I do shoot 350gr ranch dog bullets - cast with a gas check - WW LRP....46-47gr 0f 3031....this is an intermediate load - apprx 1600 to 1700 fps....used the same charge for 405gr and jacketed bullets in that weight range - its good for anything on this side of the planet and 99% of the African critters....

The reflex 264 article/thread is by far and away the best. I also find RL 7 is the best powder for 350 grain jacketed Bullets.

Welcome to the forum. I don't shoot that particular bullet. I shoot cast rounds and have developed some astounding accuracy working up various loads. You might grab yourself the new Lyman 50th edition reloading manual. It has a wealth of information in it concerning this fine old caliber. Let us know how your coming along and pics would be great.
