Case, .45-70 Gov't is a crafting item in Fallout: New Vegas.
- 2 to 5 casing can be found on the dead body of an enemy that was wielding a brush gun or a hunting revolver or a Ranger Sequoia at the time of their death. You will typically see Great Khans wielding the hunting revolver and you will see Veteran Rangers carry the Ranger Sequoia or the brush gun.
- When you fire a weapon chambered in the .45-70 Gov't round there is a 35% chance you'll get a casing and a 20% you'll get a casing if you're using the SWC round.
- You'll get 25 .45-70 Gov't casings if you buy a .45-70 case box.
- Occasionally some travelling merchants will "sell" .45-70 Gov't casings (among many other calibres), but they will always be for free. Likewise, if you try and sell casings to a merchant, you will not yield any money.
