Not sure what you are going to use it for or your limit for cost. Remington makes a 405 grain factory load that shoots very well and the cost is about $35 a box. Cor-Bon makes a 460 grain hard cast load. Buffalo Bore makes a 430 grain hard cast load. Garrett also makes some heavy loads up to 540 grains. Unless you are going after dangerous game I think I would give the Remington 405's a try as the cost will be much easier on you then the other three. You may find that your 45-70 shoots 300 or 350's just as well as heavy bullets. What model of 45-70 and what game if any are you aiming at?
