Just to be clear, the 45-70 is a taperd case. Not a lot of taper but it is tapered, not straight.

The 350 grain Round Nose is a good choice. Several powders work well. H-4895 kicks it up a notch compared to Varget. 3031 and Reloader #7 have a sharp raport whereas the other powders have more of a push than a crack. You can tell the difference in felt recoil. None of them are fun to shoot off a bench if you are burning through a couple boxes of ammo. The factory 405 grain loads are down-loaded for Springfield type rifles and are mild to shoot compared to what you can do with your handloads.

Snuffy, great pics, thanks for sharing.
