50-70 Government was originally designed for blackpowder, this obsolete vintage cartridge is again rising in popularity due to the increasing participation in cowboy action shooting and blackpowder silhouette competitions.

* 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.
Great brass and great people to deal with, looking forward to the 50-70 run.

I have two antique rifles in 50-70 GOV'T. The brass that I've gotten from starline is second to none. The quality is outstanding, and even when loaded to full bore black powder loads, I have yet to have a split case or any significant stretching in five reloads from both a Springfield 1868 Trapdoor and a Remington NY State Militia Rifle.
I could not be happier with this product. Thank you Starline. I hope you make more real soon.

Without your excellent .50-70 brass my trapdoor Springfield would be forever silent.
