It is widely considered one of the greatest cartridges ever developed by the U.S. government, the .45-70 cartridge is also known under many other names, such as the .45-70 Government, and .45-70 Springfield cartridges. This cartridge still retains its reputation among hunters and shooting enthusiasts today, and it is one of the few cartridges that have thrived since being switched from black powder to smokeless powder in the 1950s. As a short-term replacement for the .50-70, the .45-70 was developed at the historic Springfield Armory in Massachusetts.
Springfield trapdoor action rifles were improved in several important ways after the adoption of the .45-70 in 1873. When the cartridge was introduced seven years earlier, it could be used against point targets up to 300 yards away and could be used for area effect fire up to 600 yards away.
After the Spanish-American War, when the .45-70 cartridge became phased out, civilian big-game hunters flocked to it, and the .45-70 began to gain popularity. With muzzle energy of more than 1,600 foot-pounds, the 405 grain FP bullet hit a distance of 200 yards and flew at 1,330 feet per second. This bullet easily killed bears, moose, and bison.

Even the African “Big Five” animals have been taken using the .45-70 cartridge by some shooters. This cartridge is still produced by ammunition manufacturers today, including Hornady offering its FTX bullets in this caliber, as well as several other manufacturers offering their specialty JHP ammunition.
A number of manufacturers manufacture single-shot rifles and lever-action rifles in .45-70, including Thompson Center Arms and Marlin.
