Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default The answer to the question no one asked a 45-70 AR

https://www.range365.com/an-ar-rifle...ver-die#page-2

$4800 comes with 50 pieces of brass and load data, since the cartridge has to be modified to work with the AR308 bolt face. Interesting... but not for that price.

Interesting, but why? Alot of additional cost, and hassle with no benefit.

Because..... .45-70! That's why!

It would be even more fun if you could load them up with black powder. Imagine the smoke cloud a mag dump would make? Problem is the gas system would probably get jammed up before half a mag...

If you want to build some thing in 45-70, start with a Siamese Mauser action and build it into a 45-70. A lot more affordable and practical.

Built one for my father. I don't think he ever shoots it.

I considered building a 458 SOCOM AR at one time. Never got around to it though.

For the same price you can build a 458 win mag and just download it.

Local gun stores sell .45-70 405gr for over $2.50 a round. I was buying online for about $1.40 shipped but no more internet sales in Commiefornia.
Needless to say, it puts a big hit on cost of ammo

I have a 45-70. I have never bought a store bought cartridge for it. Way too expensive.

I cast my own bullets and bought unprimed brass cases from Starline. That makes the ammo affordable.

This is my 45-70 military rifle, about a hundred years before the AR.
