I started getting ready for deer season this afternoon. It opens in a little over a scant four months and I've barely enough time to get ready, so I decided to cast some .45-70 bullets this afternoon.
White Label Lube Co. These folks sell lube in 32 ox bottles and I've ordered from them, I have about a half-gallon of their stuff under the bench. It's a whole lot less expensive than that brand-name lube and smells like the same stuff.
Those bullets will be loaded with smokeless and pushed to just barely over black powder velocity. I don't load my .45-70 very hot, because I've never been convinced that the recoil is worth the added momentum. Pushing that big ole 405 grain bullet at 1300 fps is plenty fast for the smallish whitetail deer we've got in these parts.
Deer season will be upon us before you know it. Get ready.
