The 45-70 Government is one of the most unique rounds on the market and has incredible performance as well. Designed back in the late 1800's, the 45-70 Government was originally used in a rolling breech lock rifle, which enabled much faster reloading times than previously available with muzzle loaders. In addition, the heavy bullet weights and massive energy makes this round a viable option for big game hunting and it is even used on the African Safari. Whether you are an antiques fan or a big game hunter, the 45-70 Government is just for you.
