America really loves their 45 caliber projectiles. From the 45 Colt and 45 ACP to the 45-70 we tend to go with bigger is better. The 45-70 is a bit different because it was designed to be a rifle round. The 45-70 is an old round, it was designed in 1873 and is still going strong. Going strong in both its popularity and its power. The 45 in 45-70 stands for a 45 caliber projectile and 70 stands for the standard 70 grains of black powder used to propel the round. 45-70 is still in use by the military as a blank round that is used with line throwing guns aboard Naval vessels.
Modern 45-70 ammo is loaded differently these days, but are still just as powerful. The round itself is now even loaded to some extremely large revolvers for hunting and silhouette shooting. Modern 45-70 ammo is capable of taking any game on the North American continent and is an absolute shoulder slapper of a round.
