Buffalo Arms
has most everything the BPCR shooter needs except the powder itself.

Accurate Arms is one of the few sources of smokeless powder load data for the .50 Gov't, if you should for some reason not want to shoot the real thing.

Like Jim, I'd suggest Buffalo Arms. If you have trouble finding bullets, we have them. If we can help just holler.

The only 50/70 I've fired was a custom T/C Contender. Great round.
