Brunix, here is the data directly out of the latest Hornady book. You can use the standard 45-70 casing, but it must be trimmed to length specifically for the flex tip from 2.105 to 2.040

I hope this helps you.

it's not for shooting mare than 5 - 10 round, only for test :D

i don't buy any bullet , only mold them... ;)

I feel as much pleasure to reload and mold the bullets as to shoot them ...
but to try a few rounds, why not ..?

So far, I have reloaded some Sierra bullets JHP 300 gr ...

Not bad, but as I only shoot target, little benefit for a high cost...
I would like to test Hornady flex tip to see the accuracy and the curve at 100 & 200 m

Also, i like the "kick ass recoil" of 405 gr Hard cast... :lol:

many years ago I could and would have said that .... but those days are gone .... I still enjoy the bullet delivering a crushing blow to its target but I no longer like the rifle stock to deliver one to my shoulder .. ;)
