H.T.M 45-70 Gov BVAC RFP 405 Grain 1600 fps....will this work in my 1873 H&R carbine?
I bought a Harrington & Richardson 45-70 1873 cavalry carbine back in Nov. and used it for rifle season................the only ammo I had was some old UMC rounds. I dont like using old antique ammo......which I assume this UMC stuff is, in my guns. I want to shoot a standard cowboy load through this gun.......also something I can use to target shoot at the range with.
I found some ammo from CHEAPER THAN DIRT.............anybody ever use this in their Trapdoor guns?
I've read that some 45-70 loads are too HOT for certain guns...............I just wanna know if this is safe to use in my carbine.

Here is the Mfg. web site for your ammo:
They list the 400gr (1900fps) as "FOR MODERN WEAPONS ONLY"! I would NOT use that load in a trapdoor.
Your load has no such warning....should be safe, but contact the mfg. for sure"Saigon Tea, 60 P, you no buy you di di DI!"
