:) Yeah right, blunt nosed, 1200 fps rimfire 44 could SOMEHOW do twice as much as today's .44 mag rifle can do. :)

in the heat of battle, in the mirage of the desert,

blackpowder, and no more than those bozos knew about shooting, the 45-70 never had 200 yds of effective range. :) Not even on stationary, fully-eposed torsos. On cover user's heads, 100 yds at best. on head on prone men, 150 yds.

Just curious,.........is everyone in the world a clown but you???
Is that why you talk to yourself?, because no one is as smart as you?
I was kind of liking this forum, but you're a drag!
Why are you so bitter, and why do you feel the need to be better than everyone else?
I don't know if I want to hang out here with you here!

IIRC The Henry rerpeater came with sights calibrated out to 400m, but the usable range was more like 150m. The 45-70 was a different proposal, with a full sized round, and a stronger casing. The 44Henry was a .44 cal bullet over a 28gr charge, with a rimfire ignition system. The main advantage was light recoil and usable in a short stroke repeater(Lever Gun). The 1866 "Yellow Boy" Winchester shared the same round, but the later models were chambered for the more robust .44-40. The 45-70 was designed with the long range shooter in mind, also worked well on both sides of the law. Buffalo hgunters liked to kill sveral and then collect the flints(Hides) from a single location rather then chasing a spooked herd. The round was usually hand reloaded on site, by the hunter, and they rolled their most accurate rounds as a miss didnt pay any bills.
