150 meter fun with the Pedersoli Rolling Block 45/70 rifle
Just a little fun with my Pedersoli 45/70 Rolling Block rifle equipped with an early 20th century Winchester A5 scope. Nice combo for plinking metal at 150 meters just before New Year’s Eve.

I have a pederslli supermatch 45/70 creedmore rollingblock. Need to work up a good load. I am using lyman 457132 postell 535g bullets. What is a good starting load?
For a 100 m target work, start with 51 grains of 1,5 Fg Swiss + 2 mm cardboard wad + 1:16 tin:lead bullet sized to .458″ + good quality lube. Seating depth: bullet touches the rifling.
