  1. Speaking from experience my wife does NOT like surprises such as one of my BP shotguns shells in her ammo which is smokeless. Yes its a pain but better to be safe than sorry. As stated already just reuse the case and primer and bullets and fertilize the plants, Hochbauer
  2. Bullets by Scarlett....if you happen to get delivery at a match hugs are also included. Hochbauer
  3. Get a hold of Black Hills Barb. She is from Pa and makes mens shirts to fit all sizes and designs. All handmade here in the USA. Look up El Posse Grande her contact info is on there. She is at a match this weekend but does check her email. Tell her Sgt Hochbauer sent you. Hochbauer
  4. I took apart my 73 and was holding the extension and accidentally popped open the little thing on top and now cannot get the spring back in place. The pins do not seem to be able to get pushed out. Thought someone might have a suggestion before I try drilling. I do have the replacement on order from Pioneer Gunworks but cannot shoot the gun until I get that or fix the existing one. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Hochbauer
  5. We recently got one as a back up rifle in .38/.357. It was smooth out of the box. I tried it with 105 and 147gr bullets fed both nicely. I had some issues with the screws as they were so tight had to take it to a gunsmith to get them loose. I just ordered a new firing pin extension to replace the stock one. Hope it fits properly since while ordering the new one I had the stock one in my hand and while playing with it popped the spring out of place and cannot get it back. Project for this morning. Would not mind having one in 44-40. It also did not seem to have any issues shooting real BP.
  6. Fill up the case some compression and good to go....It might take a few hours to stop smiling after shooting a stage though. I use 2f of goex for my 44-40 loads. Hochbauer
  7. I have used both and have had no issues with my TTN hammered dbl loading my BP shotgun shells. Nor have there been any issues with my wife's smokeless sg loads in her Stoeger. Hochbauer
  8. I shoot a 66 in 44wcf. When I bought it I had to choose between that one and a 73. Could not pass on the brass beauty. It now has a great patina...the only shiney spot on it is the new brass magazine cap. That said my next 44wcf would be a 73...just a bit easier to tear down. Hochbauer
  9. I load my 44-40 on a dillon 550 with Goex 2f pretty much fill the case top off with a 200 gr big lube bullet..Shotgun is loaded on mec jr also 2f. I use a square load 1oz of shot and equal amount of powder. For my ROA'S I load 25 gr of goex 3f. I preload tubes using Lyman bp measure. I think the dipper would be 1.6 but dont quote me on that. Hochbauer
  10. Being a darksider I pretty much do not have a choice but to reload my own ammo. Not to mention casting my own bullets. Its very satisfying and saves $$$
  11. I use a square load for my 12ga. Its a 1oz shot dipper of goex 2f and 1oz of 7.5 or 8 shot.I like to use fiber wads and roll crimp my hulls if I am feeling industrious. Have fun and be safe. Hochbauer
  12. These are brand new unless you count the 20 test rounds. I am asking $600.00 or open to a trade such as a TTN hammered dbl. But open minded. Prefer face to face here in Pa or Md. They are sequentially numbered. Hochbauer
  13. I am not familiar with the Pale Rider category. That said I am a darksider and use a square load of 2ff goex. Whatever amount of powder that goes into a 1 oz shot dipper and 1oz of shot. I prefer to use fiber wads but use the claybuster red wads. This will work real well on any takedowns. Hochbauer
  14. I was having issues loading 44-40 with smokeless kept having bullets getting pushed into the case. I was using a Lee FCD which have worked fine for me on other calibers. The redding crimp die resolved the issue. Money well spent. If I was loading bp and using the Lee fcd no issues as the bullet was resting on the powder. Hochbauer
  15. Lunger, If you want to shoot frontiersman for the NC state shoot I will be happy to bring an extra for you to use. Just let me know. Hochbauer
  16. I normally shoot a 66...no lever safety thing on that never had issues with an AD. The question is this....To those that shoot these did you leave it as is or lighten the tension if so how. Or can that just be removed? Hochbauer
  17. I have the Slix Shot nipples on my ROA's and with Rem #10 no issues...I tried CCI #11 not such good results. Tried with the stock nipples same thing. I do have a limited amount of Remington #10 so am going to use them sparingly and likely shoot some cartridge guns a bit more than I would like. But I think I do have some Treso nipples and will try them if they fit my ROA's. Sometimes its just not so easy to have fun. Hochbauer
  18. I have been shooting Frontiersman the past few seasons or as I refer to it as I shoot the Masochist category. Last year I began experimenting with an 87 I must say its going well at least it appears that way to me. Happily my ROA's run nicely and of course once in a while I may have to go round an extra time to get one chamber to go off...just part of the fun. Am going to EOT and starting off using my 87...that said my TTN double will be coming along just in case Hochbauer
  19. If I am feeling a bit industrious I like to roll crimp my BP shells. For the most part I use AA hulls but will use the STS once they get a bit a bit worn and they get roll crimped. They all get run through a super sizer before loading on a MEC jr. For my wifes smokeless she gets STS hulls which is her preference and loaded in a MEC 9000. This year I have been using a 87 which has only been fussy with my paper hulls. Hochbauer
  20. App is not real BP it is a substitute. If I recall correctly there should be some compression. See manufacturers data there should be some on the bottle. Here is info from the website: General loading instructions are to fill the case with our loose powder just to the point where the base of the bullet will very slightly compress the powder, about 1/16", when it is seated. NO FURTHER COMPRESSION is recommended or advisable and will result in increase pressures and erratic velocities! It is important that no air space or gap be left when the bullet is seated, and the use of fillers is not
  21. I had bought these several years ago and forgot where I had gotten them. But now need some for .36 cal the others that I have are for .44 cal. Thanks Hochbauer
  22. I began playing with a Coyote Cap 87 last year. It does take some getting used to bit is lots of fun to shoot. Mine does not seem to like paper hulls or brass hulls. It seems to be ok with Win AA and Rem STS hulls. Normally I have been shooting with a hammered double but have put that aside so as to get used to shooting this. This will be coming to EOT with me but so will the double just in case. Hochbauer
