I assume youíre talking about Buffalo Bore.

Yes, they are hot loads. The risk is using them in older firearms. I think thatís mainly the .45/70, since itís been around long enough to see some older rifles with steel that isnít up to the task. In more modern rifles made for higher pressures, itís fine. I donít know the specifics, but Iím sure the folks at Buffalo Bore can fill you in.

I love their ammo. I shoot it in my .454. None of your standard factory stuff can touch it. Only outfits similar to Buffalo Bore, like Cor-bon and Underwoods is in the same league.

Gotta be careful with Buffal Bore ammo in your .45 Colt revolvers. Some can take it, some cannot.




I'm here to give and receive knowledge, not affirmation or adoration. If you don't like it, mierda dura. Intellectual honesty is not for fragile egos.

Go to the web page and it had detailed guidelines for what firearms are up to the job.
