Looking for some .458 bullets for a 45-70 I recently picked up. Not too concerned with weight because they are so hard to find now but would prefer jacketed bullets.

Dont discount the cast bullet. ESPECIALLY in a caliber that was BUILT UPON THEM!!

They is nothing needed to me done with a 45/70 that cannot be properly accomplished with a cast bullet. I realize its no easier to find unless you know a bullet caster.

You’re right, I was just thinking leading harder to clean. I’ve seen some that are coated with something that they claim makes barrel easier to clean.

That is powder coating. Yes it completely encapsulates the cast allowing for softer alloys & higher velocities WITHOUT fear of leading. Here are some of my favorites that I cast & coat. RtoL 300g to 450+g.

In the old forum lack of reply would be grounds for locking the thread. So since rules no longer apply here. Anyone else interested in a trade?

Sorry to you all. I didn't realize there were comments on this thread. I don't check too often. On other listings I'm a part of, I get emails regarding my posts. For some reason, I don't get them on this website. Is there a way of turning on alerts if someone can help me?

As to buying some .458 bullets, you might want to try looking at Hawk's site and "bullet selection, Hawk Bullets"

Depending on what you're hunting with your 45-70, they have several weights and styles. They also give you the opportunity to choose a jacket thickness, which will, in turn, cause quicker or slower expansion. Larger numbers = thicker jackets. lower numbers = thinner jackets.

Good Luck! (y)

No I didn’t get it. I did receive a response email from someone else having bullets for sale.
