The 45/70 Government 300gr. Hornady JHP, also known as the .45-70 Government, was one of the first cartridges designed for the newly developed lever-action rifles. It was introduced in 1873 by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. But the .45/70 was an instant success and was adopted by the U.S. military as the standard rifle cartridge for the next 25 years. The cartridge remained in service until the early 1900s, when the .30-06 Springfield replaced it.  

The .45/70 is still popular, thanks to its versatility and heavy bullet. It is often used for tracking big game, such as deer, bears, and moose. But the cartridge is also popular with target shooters and long-range shooters.

It was also used in the Martini-Henry rifles used by the British Army. The .45-70 offered the military a round that could be fired in both rifle and carbine versions of their weapons. The game was also adopted by the National Rifle Association for use in long-range match rifle competitions in 1885.
