SASS Wire Vet

SASS Wire Vet (1/1)



  1. Do you shoot 45acp in other pistols? 1911? Glock? Whatever else? I do 45acp for smokeless, also same load for my 1911s. I load 45cbwy spl just for black/subs. My converter is the Kirst.
  2. Also, you can use 45 Cowboy Special ammo in the 45 ACP conversion cylinder. I do this in my Old Army's.
  3. Attached are some of @Larsen E. Pettifogger, SASS #32933 tuning guides for Pietta's, and Uberti's with info on doing the coil type conversions. I used these years back for my 1860s and they came out great, not sure how different a Dragoon would be. Tuning_the_Pietta_Part_Two.pdf Tuning_the_Uberti_Open_Top_Revolvers_Part_2.pdf
  4. I have this press, parts that work the auto indexing are flimsy plastic, and wear out/break easily. Even after getting new parts from LEE, it still didn't hold up. Now I rotate the dies manually. Been like this for 10 years now.
  5. Come to think of it, Smoke in the Woods 2011 was the last lost brass match I was at!
  6. 15 years ago, at PA State '09 is when I was born a darksider, my first full match doing real black. My life has been downhill ever since........
  7. Thank you everybody. It was an honor being sponsored by @Double Tap Taylor, and am proud to join the ranks.
  8. A good portion of nitrocellulose is from China grown cotton, which is in limited supply to Western nations, if not flat out embargoed. Most of what is available is being used for the war effort in Ukraine/Israel/Gaza.
  9. I use once fired hulls, typically either STS, or the red Winchester AA's. Also started roll crimping since I had a hell of a time dealing with sticking shells at one State match a year ago, rarely, if ever, stick now. Also mop out the chambers after each stage.
  10. Shooter's Handbook is not clear on what could be considered protected regarding shooting style, costumes, or propellant. One MD I spoke with said D, GF, CC, BW, and BP categories are base and protected (except when age breakdowns happen), while other MD's say they are not. It's just not the best then when you arrive for a match, and find out you got moved into another category, because the MD didn't want to honor your 'base' category. And as a GF, it sux extra because there's no other category to shoot GF in (besides BW).....
  11. Can't shoot gunfighter in any category other than Gunfighter or B-Western, also Wrangler is aged based, so yes, that could get rolled down to Cowboy. when @mean gun mark mentioned 'base' categories, I am under the impression that he meant Gunfighter, Duelist, Classic Cowboy, B-Western, and Black Powder categories. Of which I'm under the impression they all are 'base' categories, that would always be offered. Yet, re reading the rule book, I'm not so sure.
