Looking to buy 1 box of Winchester 45-60 ammo. This is for an antique Winchester 1876. The ammo I see offered online says "not for use in original antiques".

If you have an extra box of 45 -60 ammo you are willing to part with. please email me the particulars. raps7575@aol.com

 

Thanks, Richard

These can easily be made from 45-70's if you just want shooter ammo.  The 45-70 is just .215 longer.  There are some other dimensions that are different but all you need is a f/l die set and some 300 grain bullets of the correct diameter for your bore.  .459 most likely.  Cut the 45-70's to the correct length 1.89".

You mean you've found a source of loaded ammo?  That's surprising, though I've heard of cases being available from time to time.  Rather than go to the trouble of cutting down .45-70s, I'd buy the loaded rounds, pull the bullets (which can be reused), & reload those cases.

Good idea.  I would rather have the correct head stamp. Call first.  https://www.grafs.com/catalog/category/categoryId/3945
