  1. I seem to remember seeing an approved cylinder modification for the 58 Remington, of opening the area around the nipple. I've tried looking on here again as well as the handbook, but cannot find it. So, was I just dreaming, or does it exist?
  2. I never had an issue using them. On stock nipples, I had to squeeze a little to get them to stay on. Never had a fail to fire. On my 58's and ROA with Slix nipples, had no issues at all and I didn't have to squeeze them to fit, again your mileage may vary. Only reason I stopped using them were for the reason you mentioned, price.
  3. Wish I knew about the 87. I have a hammered double I'm sure we could have worked out a deal! Silly question, do you know an ejector is legal on a single shot shotgun? I have one you can borrow if you want to use it.
  4. Hoss, I've been using the rule in the "Basic rules for the long range competitions" section, under the Buffalo Single Shot which states ejectors are prohibited, "EXCEPT FOR SPRINGFIELD TRAPDOOR RIFLES".
  5. Staying in one bay is very limiting and will all depend on target positions. Work from there. All the normal, cowboy main match shooting scenarios work well. The trick is adjusting for the single shot rifle. I've used pistol main match targets as well as rifle main match targets for the pistols. Unless your targets are small, most folks have little problems hitting the rifle main match targets. Of course, set up the rifle targets your going to use for Plainsman further out. Try to have the number of these targets match the number of targets for main match(ie, 5 main match pistol/rifle
  6. I'm using what came on my Ruger Old Armies. They appear to be Slix nipples. One set was rough to cap, but noticed the tips were mushroomed slightly. Chucked in a drill and lightly filed them. Haven't had an issue since. I haven't seen anything near what your seeing in prices. The last couple times I bought some(earlier this month), they were still under $6.00 each(Good Sam's discount price. Normal, under $7.00) at Gander Outdoor. Before I forget, I'm using Remington #11 caps, and have not had any issues/misfires.
  7. I've used them exclusively from around 1986 to just last year. They were always reliable. Some consider them hotter than both CCI or Remington. Unfortunately, I stopped using them because I could get a 1k of caps for about half the price of RWS.
  8. "Need to meet a 'smoke factor' (in other words, we gotta see smoke)" what Singing Sue said. In short, if the spotters aren't coughing, choking, sneezing, or just plain complaining when your done shooting, then you need more smoke!!
  9. Hey Possum, Gander Outdoor near me has never had an issue with having any except last month. I'm hoping it had more to do with Christmas holidays/ hunting season than having any real issue with supply. I'll find out here in a couple weeks when I go down with Limey for her CT scan/Chemo treatment. They've had Remington #11 and Winchester Magnum. Send me a PM with a number I can text you at if they have any. Clueless
  10. This is what I use. To me, it's far easier to use, more accurate, and, again, to me, safer. Your not taking a handful of loose powder in a container that can turn into a hand grenade.(by the way, that's my thoughts on the flask) I fill the tubes while sitting at home at my leisure using nothing but the Lee dippers. I only have in my hands what I need to fill that pistol. I take out more when I start my next pistol. Oh yeah, tubes similar to these are available on Amazon. They also last. These tubes are over 10 years old.
  11. Too bad I'm doing the covid sit and wait or I'd be there and could help you out. Another guy, who is also knowledgeable on C&B's and should be there, is Mr. Finger. I'm a bit confused on the "cap and seated". How long has the firearm been loaded? If it was me, I'd shoot it, and clean it. That way, when you load it this weekend, everything will be fresh. You can load the cylinder anywhere, I usually load my cylinders while working the unloading table. Cap only when at the loading table.
  12. Oh man, what a great Plainsman rifle that would make!!!
  13. Great video!! You know how to determine if it’s great? You start watching it and before you realize it, it’s done!! Where did that 16 minutes go??
