  1. I use a Lyman Blackpowder Measure and drop-Tube , I batch process, I resize a bunch, Clean a bunch, Seat the Primers, (Watching a Western) Flair the case mouths, put them in loading blocks, (50 or 100 to a block ) drop powder in, Seat and crimp bullets. I usually process 400 - 800 cases at a time ... I use Goex 3F, 34 grains under a 181 gr RNFP, lubed with SPG. I use the same load in both rifles and Pistols... I get very little fouling, Tons of smoke and my guns will run a 6 stage match with No attention .... I take the side plates of my 66 every 2 or 3 years to check for fouling and to lube things up and inspect for wear... My 66 has a 24.5/8 inch barrel and the bullets carry enough lube out to the end of the barrel to make a nice soft lube star at the muzzle... My revolvers are 7.5 inch Uberti Cattlemen... I have recut the throats to 19 degrees, squared up the barrel faces slightly opening the cylinder Gap to better work with Blackpowder... I buy Star - Line .44-40 brass in lots of 500 or 1,000 ( it is cheaper than 38-40 brass ) run it through the size die like normal and load ... Up here a batch of 500 cases in .44-40 is $45 bucks cheaper than the 500 38-40 cases, both being Star-line ... This year marks my 60th. year reloading with-out supervision, started out under the watchful eyes of my dad before that... You could say I apprenticed under his care. Jabez Cowboy

  5. I shoot .44 Russian Long (.44Special) in my 1871 Open - Tops , I use 30gr. by weight of Goex 3F under a 240 gr. SWC or a 228 gr. RNFP in Star - Line brass... I have a good amount of compression, and can run 6 stages with ease... with-out any fuss... Jabez Cowboy
  6. How about Pistol Caliber Single Shot Rifle , mine is a Low wall in .38 WCF. Black and Smokieless . Jabez Cowboy
  7. Any barrel Length over 4.2 inches or longer on a pistol is Just Restricted on revolvers, except those in .32 and.22 caliber those are a No go (prohibited). Lever guns can be in .22, .25, 32 and bigger calibers. Long range rifles are not a problem. The twit is trying to force through a bad on 10 gauge shotguns ( not a law yet ) Alberta where I life has instructed the RCMP not to enforce the new Federal Gun Laws... I guess we will see how that goes... The 2023 SASS Canadian Nationals will be held 7.2 miles from my place... Stop by for a visit if you come up this way. Jabez Cowboy
