Variants

.45-70 Gov't, hollow point

Hollow point bullets mushroom or fragment on impact, causing massive trauma to unarmored targets, similar to those of buckshot. On the flip side however, since the bullet loses all of its energy upon contact, it will hardly be able to penetrate armored targets.

.45-70 Gov't, SWC (hand load)

Flat-nosed round designed to deal maximum damage to targets at close range by tumbling when it hits. This type of round was originally designed to shoot paper targets. This ammunition type puts a severe strain on your gun's condition due to its extremely heavy powder load. It requires the Hand Loader perk to craft.
