If He wonts to shoot the contender in 45-70 then he can load his own using Trailboss powder and get a very mild report, less recoil load, without all the pressure generated with some if not most of the modern powders that are on the market I use it in my 45-70 modern gun and you don't have to take a beating. It is also a very safe powder in most all guns. If one has to ask which is fine I would say you need to do a lot of study on safe pressures and also what pressures are generated. the contender is too light in my opinion for even safe loads in 45-70 I for one can not stand the recoil
