    45/70-90

    Anyone shooting a 45/90.? Iv got 45/70 dies, cases and Postell mold but the rifle I'm looking at is in 45/90 and I'm struggling to find a set of 90 dies. RCBS make a set but expensive
    compared to the Lee ones (which i already have.) I don't want to buy anything yet as the rifle purchase might fall through but am wondering if my Lee 45/70 ones will do the job if
    adjusted to the correct length. The only problem i can see is if the decapping pin isn't long enough.
    Anyone got experience with this.?? Tim

    45-90

    HI ,
    I shoot 45-90 Sharps,
    use a set of RCBS 45-70 dies which came with the rifle, work great, pin screws out , no problem,
    bought a set of 45-90s never used them,
    sold on here,
    also shoot a 11.7x56 Rolling Block,
    use Lee 45-70 dies,
    change the pin for a universal decapper pin, longer.
    set to length, away you go,
    hope this helps,
    T

    Many Thanks TALL. Love the 45/70 and would buy another but they don't come up that often and this 90 has caught my attention if we can get a deal sorted.
