This obsolete vintage cartridge was originally designed for use with both smokeless and black powder. Our case is properly sized to fit in even the tightest chambers*. Internal capacity is similar to that of Winchester brass. Wall thickness at mouth is .0095" average.
*Note: In firearms with larger chambers, this brass may become shorter than desired after fireforming. Those shooters who wish to have brass that is longer than 2.090" after fire forming and neck sizing should form our .45-70 brass into .40-65 as a good alternative.
* Starline Brass does not sell any loaded ammunition. What you are purchasing are brass cases only and will need to be loaded into ammunition in order to be fired from a firearm.
