It's in my shopping cart on midwayusa.com. along with federal power shoks. Just wondering if there's anything else that I might have good luck with.

is there a Cabela's in your area ? .... they handle HSM ammo and as noted early in this thread, they really perform well in our Henry 45-70 .... if I didn't reload, I'd stick with HSM's

Keep in mind hogs aren't that tough. Got a buddy that kills em on the regular with his 220 swift. Used to watch our butcher kill em in the slaughter room with a 22lr. Hope you can find a round your revamped gun likes!

Me too.... Lol however, to help with it, I found a ammo supply that saves around 10 bucks a box. Ammoliquidator.com

Your 45-70 is more than ample , I’ve killed hundreds of pigs , many with a 223 so I agree with Dennis H. You will be fine with any 45-70 rounds
