Loads much tighter started late and got it on paper. Last 2 shots real close but ran out of light. Gonna try again this weekend. Just got in 100 sst's from Luke so it's not a buck a shot also gonna try some mmp's for the cva 45-70 so I don't have to knurl hopefully the accuracy doesn't diminish. Will post results.

You can take a 45-70 Gov. centerfire barrel and have a breach plug installed. You can then load smokeless powder and a .45 bullet in it. The centerfire barrels are rated for the pressures from smokeless powder allowing you to make a smokeless muzzleloader.
DO NOT try to use smokeless powder in a regular muzzleloader barrel. Savage 10ML is the only production smokeless muzzleloader that I know of.

Smokeless powder = cleaning isn't necessary. Just normal maintenance of a centerfire.
