Product Description

Please note that due to shipping restrictions all ammunition, primers and gun powders are not available for online purchase. Please contact our store and we would be happy to provide you with a quote and process your order manually for any of these items.

Buffalo Bore Magnum ammo has all the features a hunter could want. This example, in .45-70 , is a prime choice for big game hunters. It's loaded with a 500 grain Barnes Solid Copper bullet which it fires at 1600 fps. It's an excellent round for taking down moose, bear, or buffalo. 

Never use this ammo in ANY original or reproduced "Trap Door" action as the design is far too weak. 

Buffalo Bore .45-70 ammunition is externally identical to SAAMI spec 45-70 ammo, but internally it generates FAR more power and pressure. So, the .45-70 ammo will fit into ANY .45-70 firearm, but is not safe in every 45-70 firearm. Its use should be limited to the following firearms: All Marlin 1895 (1895 Marlins are all Model 336 actions, chambered in .45-70) iterations made since 1972, all Browning 1885 and 1886 copies, New England Arms Handi Rifle, T/C Encore, ALL falling block actions made of modern steel such as Ruger #1 and #3, Shiloh, Christian and Persoli Sharps, all Winchester 1886 iterations made since 1915 and all Siamese Mauser bolt actions.
