A close friend of mine is doing some R&D work for some possible cartridges to manufacture in the future.
His question was this.
Would any of you that shoot .45-70's see a use/market for cartirdges that contained 4 or so buck-shot balls in a .45-70 case? Obviously these would be for close encounter, sort of "in-camp" type loads not intended for bear defense or anything of the sort.
What do you think? I still am unsure whether they would be useful or not.
