Re:  Brass for Foreign, Black Powder, Cartridge, Military Rifles & Price list for cases.
Perhaps the finest brass currently being made for 19th Century arms.  Excellent people to deal with and very interested in our era!!

Hii

I just purchased  m67 Danish rolling block & was told by the gun shop where I got it from that I could shoot 45-70 thru it. I just had it to the range & it seemed to shoot very well. My load was 300 gr. lead fp using 30 grs of acc.5744 smokeless powder.the fired cases looked very good. In the meantime I have ordered some 11.7x51 Danish brass,( very expensive) I was wondering if you have any load data on this cartridge with smokeless powder or black powder??

Thankyou very much      Bill Palmer       e-mail = wpalmer @ aol.com
