The 90 and the 120 were Sharps cartridges. The Rolling Block was never designed for them.

With modern powder the case capacity of the 45-70 exceeds the amount necessary for maximum pressure loads. The larger case capacity of the longer shells would be meaningless.

so very true hiwall a friend of mine has a custom ruger no1 in 450 nitro express 3&1/4 inch with a 28 inch barrel and at full power loads which uses 105 grns os smokless powder under a 500 grain bullet gets him 2150fps,to me all that extra powder and the velocity it gets is not worth all the extra powder,a ruger no1 22 inch barrel in 45/70 with a 500 grn bullet gets 1850 fps with 55 grns of powder, so for an extra 300 fps he gets he uses 50 grns more powder.
