Trying this query again. I'm looking to standardize my 45-70 cases for safety & accuracy. I have more W-W than R-P, so am entering into a trade for W-W. Pls. share your pro's & con's. Thanks.
Is that after being sized and trimed?There is quite a variance in capacity between different brands of .45-70 brass. Pressures and velocities of an established load will change when switching to a different brand of brass. A maximun or near maximum load developed in Winchester brass could very well be dangerous in Remington brass. Use caution!
