  4. I too was surprised to see that temperatures about 40 degrees and below lead to erratic reports on many lighter loads. I had thought that the temperature would have had to be lower before impacting the loads. Live and learn.

  7. I bought a brace of consecutively numbered SAAs in .45 Colt (4.75 in. barrels) off the SASS classifieds for $2400, 6 yrs ago. The prices seem to fluctuate a lot. It seems to be a right time, right place sort of thing.

  9. Yes and more, LOL. The S&W action depends on two springs; trigger spring inside the rebound slide and the hammer spring. (mainspring) Both bust be matched, this is a SAFETY factor. The trigger spring must be of proper tension so it returns the trigger forward FASTER than the hammer spring pushes the hammer. I will be direct here; some nitwits (not you, other people I um...know) chop off a coil or two off the rebound spring and call it good. If you want to shoot yourself in the butt someday, this is a good plan. Here's why; The internal safeties on the S&W design DEPEND on proper we

  12. Howdy This is the best book there is on the subject. This link brings you to the author's sight. You can also buy it from Midway or Amazon. http://www.gunbooks.com/sw.html It is not cheap, but it is the best. It is a complete gunsmithing guide for S&W revolvers, covering everything from simple disassembly to complex smithing. As far as tools are concerned, I have a pretty complete set of Brownells Magna-Tip screwdrivers that I use for all my gun work. http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/general-gunsmith-tools/screwdrivers-sets/magna-tip-sets/magna-

  15. Shooting a single action with a modern two handed grip seems odd to me. I've just never shot a single action that way. It looks like most of the black powder shooters shoot duelist or gunfighter. It seems odd to see someone shooting black powder with a two hand hold. Especially so when shooting cap guns.

  16. I like a 60% bees wax 40% lamb tallow for my grease cookies I load under the bullet and 40% bees wax 60% lamb tallow for a paste on top of the bullet for cap guns or making my own felt wads. Have shot two day matches and not have to clean either day with the cookie recipe.
