Description

20 cartridges of 45-70 Government.

300 grain round nose, flat point, lead with Hi-Tek coating.  Aluminum gas check.

These bullets are designed for small to medium sized buffelo.  Great hunting round and fun for target shooting.  They’ve been designed for a Trapdoor rifle, so that is the lowest pressure of the 45-70 Goverment rifles.  As such, you can shoot these in any 45-70 Gov firearm (Trapdoor, Lever or Modern).  While lower pressure, the lead bullets allow them to reach a speed of over 1750 feet per second.  With a 300 grain bullet, that results in quite a lot of energy: 2,039 ft/lbs.

Hi-Tek

If you are not familiar with Hi-Tek coating, you will want to be.  The coating is a polymer that lubricates the bullets so wax is not needed.  Additionally, the coating protects you from direct contact with lead. The coating is allowed for shooting steel targets (having no copper jacket), reduces how much lead gets on your fingers and protects the barrel from leading.  More information can be found at Missouri Bullet Company.
