40-65 Win, 40-65 Winchester, .40-60 Marlin, .40-65 Marlin
2.097 - 2.104 O.A.L.
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.

45-100 Sharps
2.596 - 2.603 O.A.L.
This is a .45-70 based case that is 2.6 inches long and is suitable for smokeless or black powder loads. When loading with black powder, annealing of mouth may be necessary to allow case to properly seal chamber due to lower pressures generated by these loads. Our case is produced very strong to withstand high pressure loads associated with smokeless hunting loads and since the only way to make brass harder is to work the material our only option is to leave them stiffer so the customers can anneal for specific application. See annealing procedure in Commonly Asked Questions, section #4.
