    They'll only appreciate in value over time, although I'm pretty sure you'll hang onto them unless things were to really get dire.

    Greenfield actually, easy to mix up, I had to look it up myself to be sure! In fact, when I was looking them up, I discovered that they were made in Evansville, Greenfield, and most recently Knightstown. More info here: Blue Book of Gun Values - CENTURY MFG., INC.

    A friend owned one for a short time, but he sold it before I got a chance to shoot it!

    Does anyone have info on the short 45-70? Specifically, how to shorten the case to 1.8" that the average reloader can perform to create a few rounds to hunt with. I have a Marlin 1895 circa 1972 w/microgroove rifling so cast bullets are not a good option. I do not want to modify the Marlin to function (cycle) only the 1.8" cartridge. Accordingly, I have procured a quantity of Speer 450gr .458 SPFN bullets with a cannelure that will accommodate seating the bullet out to close to regular 45-70 COAL which should allow the short case to cycle in the unmodified Marlin. Any info or comments would be greatly appreciated.

    I took great delight in pointing out to the wife how glad she should be that I have the 45-70 when this happened. What if a wild angry bison came along when the grandkids were here. Papaw would have to shoot it with the 45-70.

    I wasn't aware there was a 'Movement' to get rid of .45-70....?

    Good knock down power, cartridges in all kinds of weights & types, several dead blow hammer reliable formats to send the rounds through still available...
    Shoots home cast lead like a champ, common primers & propellants, reloads great,
    What's not to like?

    Yeah, like the only thing wrong with a 45-70 is that when your cases get old and split at the mouth there's not a revolver so that you can trim the cases back an inch or so and keep using them.

    I finally found an 1895SBL at a local gun show not long ago. Haven't gotten it to the range yet but if velociraptors become a problem, I have the solution.

    Should we assume you are hunting on public land then?
    If not, just use the standard .45-70gvt factory rounds.
