    Loading for a BP match using APP. Noticed powder stopped dropping. Found a tiny bag of desiccant jamming the hopper. Discovered the manufacturer puts them in the APP canister, but does not mention it anywhere. Stopped shooting BP as its too much of a PIA for me. 


    You're supposed to shoot them - not insert them ......

    How do you count hits and misses if the first plate won't go down after being hit several times with light loads?



    I usually shoot .32 H&R 100 gr but I also carry a pair of Vaquero '45's in my cart .....:lol: for recalcitrant KD's.

  3. Cut a 1/2" spacer from a bic pen body & install it around the screw between the grips .  I too have pulled out several sets of escutcheons on Eagle Altamont grips. They seem to drill the holes a little deep. This will fix the problem.


    Edit: Correction to grip maker with my apologies to Eagle.

    There is a tiny roll pin holding the extractor in. Contact Widder for the best way to remove it. 


    I remember doing mine and an armorers block and short shank drift punches were worth their weight in gold.  Three hands also help. ;)

    *+And - if you are careful and don't drive the pin ALL the way out - it's a snap to get it back together.

  6. What Marauder said ^^^^^^^^


    Pistols are manufactured to shoot reasonably close to POI with the heaviest commonly used bullets for that caliber so that you can modify the front sight for lighter bullet /powder load combinations.

    Good catch since I calculated the average velocity so about half of the commercially available .44 Special ammo is over the limit. Though it might be one or two hot loads with light bullets pulling the average up... I'll look at that again later out of curiosity.

    Not knowing how much recoil you like, I'd recommend power factors around 120 when you start to reload, but that's just comfortable for me with big bore. Mid to a little lower power will make a good ring on the steel & not destroy targets.

    And averaging muzzle energy for all listed .44 Special rounds I found:

    • Average Muzzle Velocity: 1030
    • Average Muzzle Energy: 434


    Plz be advised, 1000 fps is the highest velocity allowed in handgun ammo in SASS. Most shooters load at least 25% lower.  :-)

    T-Bone, It is important that you get well!

    Your Vietnam Vets program made a huge difference in my life.  It lifted a huge load of dispair from my back.  Get well so you can help someone else as much as you did me.


    That was an intensely moving experience ....  Flag: United States on Apple iOS 13.3

  10. If you look at the Shooters Handbook under Categories, the two categories which have non-generic dress requirements are B-Western & Classic Cowboy which have specific dress requirements.  All the rest fall under the basic dress requirements.There are age based categories, shooting style based categories, firearm based categories and BP or Smokeless powder based categories.

    If this topic hasn't been discussed 50 times, it hasn't been discussed once

    Obviously, the OP needs to buy a reference manual or two

    Or to learn how to browse online the vendor's databases with his computer

    Did you notice his SASS # ?
