This is our 45/70 Recoil Lighter. The cartridge is safe in all firearms (in good condition) chambered in this caliber. This includes the Springfield Trapdoor. It’s loaded with the same 300-grain Hornady JHP used in our full-strength, 45/70 Government Light Recoil 300gr JHP 500rds, Velocity is 1410 FPS with 18″ barrels.

Our customers use this load with great success on a deer-sized game up to 100 yards. It also finds its place in cowboy action shooting circles as well as your local shooting range.

We regularly receive calls asking how we achieved this level of precision with such slight hindsight. If you like the nostalgia, ballistics, look, and feel of a 45-70 bullets 300 gr (or all of the above) without the heavy recoil of our total power load, give them a try.

    I ordered 9mm Norma and it arrived as expected in a week. Although their initial auto-email conformation was worded poorly and misleadingly, the order came out OK. It pays to be patient with them because their communication messages are not very assuring. The package was well done and wrapped in “Tamper Detection” tape, which is god for preventing shipping breaches. If simply measured by my shipment results they deserve a good rating.

    Ammo prices were decent, plus free shipping. Ordered knowing they said it would take 10 days to ship. It was 3 weeks and I emailed them and received a reply that ammo was being shipped. Shortly thereafter I received a tracking number. Upon receiving my ammo the picture showed in a wooden crate and sealed metal can inside. I received a beaten up box that was highly taped. Opened the box and all of the boxes inside were crushed, broken, and ammo everywhere. When I inquired about the bait and switch I was told I paid for the ammo not the crate, or metal box.

    I ordered about $1000 worth of ammo from this place within 3 days in 4 separate purchase orders. After ordering from company I looked up reviews, and got really spooked. I tried calling, but I experienced the same as other reviewers not being able to reach anyone. I sent an email, which not surprisingly was never responded to either. Despite all that…it took 7 business days to receive my first 2 orders. And it will be tomorrow and the following day that I’m scheduled to receive my last two. So far so good, and overall I’m happy with the fulfillment time and quality of the product.

    No communication, but got the goods in short time

    So far I’ve made two orders from them. The first went off with out a hitch. The second 6 boxes of ammo where left out and it took over a month to get them. The ammo is great target ammo and I’ve zero malfunction

    They ship via fedex, and the orders actually came from Ellebell/Savannah GA. This matches their phone number, but doesn’t match their IP address location. Maybe they drop ship? Not sure. Either way…while they’ve had some pretty horrible reviews…they are great quality, and the prices are below market for what I purchased. Hopefully they keep up this trend of quick fulfillment and try and improve on their communication capabilities. Honestly, I would buy again.

    Just be careful when ordering, read what ever description they have. Bait and switch. Order Not Shipped 1 Month After Placing It *Updated* I placed an order on 20 Aug understanding that Steel City had increased their lead times to 10 business days (info from their website). Only problem is it is now 20 Sep and I still have not received my order. Between then and now I’ve attempted to contact them through email, phone, and text but received no response at all. Order status says “Processing” on their website. If they’re still waiting on a shipment of ammo to be able to fulfill my order, then cool, I get it. Unfortunately I can’t actually get any update because it’s impossible to get in contact with anyone over there. If they ever do contact me I’ll try and update this review but right now I’m contemplating if I should call my bank and claim fraud for the charge on this order. *Update: I was finally able get in contact with the company via Facebook and they shipped out my order the next business day. It arrived 3 days later. Apparently there was a safety recall of the ammo I originally ordered (ZSR) so they substituted a different brand (Wolf) with my approval. Upgrading to 4 stars since they took care of me, but can’t swing 5 due to the difficulty in getting in contact with the company.

    I am starting to get concerned about a pending purchase I made online of in stock ammo. Tomorrow will be two full weeks since the order was placed. Yes I know that there was a holiday and Black Friday involved but it has been years since shipping of any in stock order has taken weeks to be shipped (not received). I will update this post when shipped and received. I really held out hope that this was going to be a smooth transaction.

    Once again i ordered some 9mm fmj 115 grn from ASO. I ordered it at a very cheap price. I placed my order and received it 4 days a little slower than expected. Delivery this time but that is understandable. Could have just been fedex. Ammo packaged good ammo boxes and cartridge s look great. Once again great job ASO!!!!! I will be ordering again soon.

    I have never heard of \”Norma\” brand ammo before, but it appears to be of good quality and I am eager to try it out at the range. To all the people that complained about lack of communication, I received an email every step of the way and could not ask for more. The prices were fair, but the only downsides were the shipping costs and handling fee. Overall, I am happy with my experience and I will likely buy again.

    I ordered 4 boxes of specialty .22 LR,I waited a little longer than normal,then finally received the WRONG AMMO. I called and emailed with no response,so I finally just kept calling over and over and received a call back from the company. They explained that 2 orders had gotten mixed up..blah blah,and wanted me to send this ammo back to them.. When I opened my actual ammo that I had ordered,it was all taped together with packing tape,which ripped the label off of one and made the others sticky. I returned the wrong ammo to them in the same fashion,all taped up together.

    My account was refunded the full $300. I would have much rather had the ammo. I am bumping my rating up to 4 stars. Communication for this company is still poor. In the terms of agreement they state once the ammo is picked up by FEDEX they are no longer responsible. So buyer beware!

    I ordered 9mm Norma and it arrived as expected in a week. Although their initial auto-email conformation was worded poorly and misleadingly, the order came out OK. It pays to be patient with them because their communication messages are not very assuring. The package was well done and wrapped in “Tamper Detection” tape, which is god for preventing shipping breaches. If simply measured by my shipment results they deserve a good rating.

    It seems from reading some of the review’s July 2021 was missing package month. Ordered some 12 gauge shells they shipped by FedEx Ground shows delivered but have not been found. I live in a RV so they couldn’t have left them on the front porch like it says.
