The .45-70 rifle cartridge, also known as .45-70 Government, was developed at the U.S. Army's Springfield Armory for use in the Springfield Model 1873, which is known to collectors as the "Trapdoor Springfield."

The .45-70 was the .50-70-450 cartridge, adopted in 1866 and used until 1873 in a variety of rifles, many of them percussion rifled muskets converted to trapdoor action breechloaders.

The .45/70 is a long-range caliber, and proper use requires knowledge of windage and elevation by the minute of angle and a sense for estimating distance in these calculations. The .45-70 retains excellent popularity among American hunters and still offered by several commercial ammunition manufacturers.
