Also known as: 45-70 government, 45-70, .45-70 Magnum, 45-70 govt, 45-40 gov

The .45-70 Government is a rifle cartridge designed by the US Army’s Springfield Armory to chamber in the Model 1873, known as the Trapdoor Springfield among collectors. The .45-70 replaced the former .50-70 Government that was adopted in 1866. The US military still uses this cartridge today in many line throwing gun models issued to Navy and Coast Guard officers.
