    Default Hornady 45-70 brass

    Anyone have any use for Hornady 45-70 brass?

    I have not counted but suspect there are 40 pieces.

    Note: Hornady 45-70 brass is shorter than other manufactures. This brass measures 2.030". Normal brass measures 2.100"

    I'll pay shipping.

    Noticed your recent generosity, do YOU have use for any new, unfired Win. .308 brass? I'll pay the shipping.

    Thank you for the offer. I fell into a sweet deal on .308 brass a year ago and stocked up. Accepting yours would become a hording issue on my behalf. With that said, I have to pass.

    Ran my test loads with 405gr cast/GC yesterday. IMR 4198. 34gr,36gr,38gr and 40gr. Henry has a preference for heavy bullets and as it turns out stouter loads. 34gr ran right at 1300fps poor grouping, 40gr right at 1575fps and the most accurate. BTW- I have some Hornaday 45/70 once fired brass if anyone wants it.
