I have some but don't like the idea of getting my ammo in antique rifles. I do have an complete 50-70 loading kit or setup with already cast bullets, cases, bullet mould, card punch, dies, pretty much the tooling need to keep it going bang.

How many cartridges do you need?

Bill,
Got back in, and I did some checking.
So what I've got is 50-70 Government!
2.25" overall length, and a Shell length of 1.75 !

If I'm understanding your needs, the 50-70 Springfield Trapdoor Cartridge,
(also known as the .50 U.S. Carbine) Your looking for is Shorter, and these won't fit unless cut Down!
Sorry, I thought that I could help!

Thanks for all the info gentlemen.

It appears this quest will require more investigation.

I appreciate everyone’s willingness to help.
