Well,it looks much worse with the 395 grain round nose...

By the way, how you guys can cram 70 grains of black in a modern 45-70 cases is a miracle to me, even with heavy compressing and vibrating the case (works MUCH better than a drop tube) and exposing the first grease groove of the 520 grain bullet I can only get about 56 grains (volume) of swiss 3FG in there - which is a little disappointing. I use Starline brass.

I read some people fill em' up with 65-70 grains without much troubles, I don't know how that is possible - only 5 extra grains in an already compressed load and the primer pops out.

I haven't tried other brands of powder though....
