Product Information

 ACME Bullet Company manufactures 45/70 405 Grain FP (Flat Point) hard cast bullets coated with Hi-Tek Coating.  After the bullets are coated they are then sized to .458 for final product.  The benefits to shooting with the Hi-Tek line are:  The bullet is completely encapsulated therefore reducing the exposure to  lead.  Less smoke as associated with traditional lubed bullets.  Can shoot higher velocities than regular cast bullets.  Safe in Polygonal rifling.

This is not loaded ammunition.


WARNING: This product can expose you to Lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to -

Great for Trapdoor smokeless loads

By Matthew H. on Feb 03, 2024
I used the published Hodgdon data for H4895 powder, and got great results in my 1888 Trapdoor rifle. These loaded easily and shot great with no leading at all. The look may be a bit non-traditional, but the results are worth it.

Great bullets! Loaded for trapdoor with smokeless load and works great.

Nice bullets!

I've been using these to work up a subsonic 45-70 load from my suppressed Marlin. So far so good, seem fairly accurate and are working well so far.

Rolling Block Load

By Anthony W. on Oct 15, 2020
I ordered these in 45-70 0.580 diameter for my 1871 Remington Rolling Block. The coated bullets are much cleaner to load and they produce less lead buildup in the barrel. Bore cleaning time is reduced with these coated bullets vs. uncoated lead cast bullets. The two boxes of bullets I received averaged 405 grains with a spread from 403.5 gr to 406.5 gr. I have only shot 30 rounds, but they did group nicely at 100 yards. I didn’t sort loads by weight.

Shoots great!

Loads well in my 45-70 over XBR smokeless powder. The laser cut wood box is always a nice touch for storage.

Trapdoor loads

I've used these for a bit for some smokeless loads for my trapdoor with no issues. I may try some blackpowder loads, we'll see.

I love these. Very accurate with xx gr of Unique, soft recoil but not too soft.
Highly recommend

Inconsistent weights

By Ranceford O. on Apr 30, 2019
weighed these bullets and they varied from 399 grains to 406 grains, the majority being 403 grains.
Shooting only the 403-grainers with xx grains of Trail Boss from an 1874 45-70 Sharps I got a 3" 6-shot group at 100 yards.
