The 45-70 is a bit longer and the 50-70 considerable bigger around. Obviously, powder capacity is the same.

The .50-95 WCF for the 1876 rifle

was shorter still at just under 2.25" with blown straight(er) sides and a brief shoulder and neck. It is not visually evident on this 100 yr.+ old example (I got from Gary) but there. I made mine from .348 Win. brass and used 300 gr. .510 GNR pistol bullets, Trail Boss powder.

I'm using SR4759...

once they become available again we will get back to them. I still have plenty of dies for both calibers. I have .577 and .620 blanks ordered and back ordered for well over a year.

Thanks Huey

I have a few 45-70’s. Both rifles and handguns. I was just curious to see the difference in size . Thanks again. Pete
