  1. If you had the 45 ACP cylinders and large primers became unavailable, you could use some of the 45 ACP cases which use the small pistol size primers,. If you load the ACP cases to match Cowboy Special loads and then tried to shoot them in a semi-auto 45 you could have a lot of malfunctions because the loads are too light. The Cowboy Special cases in the Colt cylinders is similar to shooting 38 Special in a .357. . Some rifles will work with the Scofield cases, but not the CS without having to modify the rifle. Some revolvers, especially Rugers, do not like Scofield brass. There are some positive and negative points to which ever way you go.
  2. Might I suggest you talk to a cowboy shooter who has a case trimmer. Anyone who has shot much has had 38 special and .357 mag cases crack on the ends,. I have trimmed lots of them to 38 Short Colt length to make shells for a derringer. You stated Short Colt and not .38 S&W which are different. . Easy to do especially if you have drill motor attachment for a case trimmer.
  3. We tried a few W3G matches at Tater Hill a few years ago and even had the bonus targets made for it. We hoped it would draw more shooters to our small program and maybe give us a little something different.. All that came were mostly are small group of regulars, The serious SASS shooters complained about it messing up their timing. I thought it was fun. We had several Wild Bunch matches before WB became official, but they did not catch on either. The shooters were so concerned about brass recovery it took forever to shoot a match. We switched to doing a .22 version of WB match and we get at least a few shooters. The last one I wrote with 20 pistol shots on a few stages was right out of a club's real WB matches. The shooters expected the usual 10-10-4 round count of a regular cowboy match complained about too many pistol rounds. At least we did not spend all day looking for missing brass. Times have changed. None of the real competitive shooters want to shoot flying birds or shoot a Texas star. Even the simple shotgun target which pops up a clay slows down a regular match, but would add to a W3G. If I knew I could draw some shooters, I would work to get some dates and put on W3G or WB on a regular basis.
