    ended up getting the 45/70, and took it out real quick and fired 7 black powder rounds out of it. Recoil isnt too bad but damn that thing is loud.

    was using 50 grains of pyrodex (by weight) and a 405 grain cast bullet

    seems like with a little work it will group pretty well.

    45/70 is an old cartridge from when they were loaded with black powder

    so you got the 45 right the dia of the bullet
    the 70 means 70 grains of black powder

    the round it self is about 2.4 inches long

    I measure my BP loads by weight after weighing a load by volume, its a hell of alot more consistent that way.

    That a Romy WASR?

    I hope to get rolling on this AK project soon. Just received my 12 ton press in the mail today and assembled it.
    Should have the rest of the tools within the month :x:
