No help with that brass.  I just inherited some Starline .45-90 brass which is 2.4 inches long.  I guess I now need to add a .45-90 WCF 1886 to the stable.  Smile

You’d like shooting the 45-90.  It does not hit you as hard as a 45-70 with the heavier bullets.

Chuck, I even have the bullet mold already.  The .45-90 WCF uses the same 300 grain bullet as the .45-60 WCF.  One mold is good for both of these.  Of course that 300 grain bullet was also loaded in .45-70’s over the years too.  A versatile bullet indeed.
