I too have a fairly new 1895 GBL in 45-70. This "Rem-Lin" as some refer to them was a little rough around the edges at the start. I bought a spring kit and a safety delete, took it apart, cleaned up some burrs here and there and now it's a nice shooter. I plan on hunting some hogs with it next year and have built a nice load using IMR3031 under some 405 gr cast RNFP sized to .459". I can say without a doubt the .459's shoot a bit tighter group than the more readily available .458" cast bullets do.
YMMV.
