.50-95 Winchester / .50-95 Winchester Express Reloading Data

Warning! Notes: The 50-70 Government cartridge gained a certain following among buffalo hunters of the period and the 50-95 is essentially an improved, repeating rifle version of that cartridge. Lyman hollowpoint bullets No. 512137 (350 grains) or 512139 (290 grains) can be used for loading. It is advisable to stick to blackpowder or low-pressure smokeless-powder loads for the Model 76 Winchester. It is not a strong action, although entirely adequate for any blackpowder load. Shortened 348 Winchester cases should work in most rifles, with very light loads. Cases from the 50-90 Sharps can be converted into perfectly fitting 50-95 WCF cases.
