If you're handloading ammo like .45/90, .45/100, .45/110, or .45/120 can you use a slug from a .45/70?

    My (antiquated!) loading manuals show bullet diameters for the .45 (Long) Colt to range from .451 to .4515 to .454. The .45-70 Gov't, however, called for a bullet diameter of .458 only.
    The heaviest .451-.454 bullet was a 240 grain. The only .458 bullet advertised was 300 grains.
    I'm quite certain that all the above stated rifle "calibers" are the same. That would be .458.

    I can't figure out which dialect my Labradors speak. I think badazz for the black dawg as he is getting more cantankerous with age. I'm sure the little blonde Tiger Lily Scout speaks with a sweet Southern lilt. Not a cross bone in her body, unlike the big dawg.

    Nope. Didn't know about a .45 Schofield. I load the 45/70, but not the others although I do have dies for the .45Colt.

    I believe the term 45 Long Colt came into use at the same time as the 45 Schofield a shorter cased 45 caliber round. The Schofield round could be chambered in the former. But not vice versa. Hence the "Long" in front of the standard "45 Colt" cartridge.

    woof... not to hijack this thread, however, I must note that most South Dakota Labradors have no Southern accent or dialect whatsoever. I now live in Georgia and the labs here do seem to woof Southern.

    Stinky... all these take a .45 caliber bullet regardless of its origin.

    Ah normally don't spell too well, butt it is almost always deliberate, to emphasize geographic origins as well as species-specific differences.

    Labrador speak with a certain kind of Southern dialect.

    Butt this time, Ah misspelt cho handle!

    No offence itended!

    jimbo, woof is obviously talking about the .45 Colt, as it is "officially" known. It is VERY commonly called the .45 Long Colt, but you already knew that. There is no reason to be a jerk here.

    Went to Wikipedia.

    Turns out that the LC became attached to it at a time that the Army was using both the Colt and the Schofield, which had a shorter cartridge length.
