  1. I've loaded BP with Bear Creek Moly Coated Bullets for years. I load the powder and then punch a lube wad out of brood sheet bees wax that be keepers use. I use the one with no metal screen in the wax. Or just melt bees wax and pour onto wax paper. let it run to about 1/16 or so in thickness. Then with the wax sheet held in the air I used the powder loaded case to punch one wad and then seat your bullet of choice. Easier done than explained. Learned this from, Wandering Star, another black powder shooter. Plenty of lubrication and you can shoot all day with no problems.
  2. Jeez, is everything hard to find? With COVID and not doing anything but watch TV. I'm having trouble finding my belt buckle!
  3. One answer to the original question. Shooters who use a traditional rifle do not want to have to compete against Handi-Rifles. It is a wonder that Ruger Old Army's are not classed as modern for the same reason. JMHO. Castalia.
  4. Bob , If there is any 9mm left I will take some. I can met you locally. Castalia

  6. Bought and sold. All good. Great group of people. Had such great dealings on this wire that once "I'll take it hits my post" and I get an address. I ship and wait for the check. Probably had close to 100 transactions.
  7. Is he using 45 Schofield brass? It has a much larger rim than 45LC. Local pard had the same problem.
  8. The 1997 SASS rule book has no rules for boots other than in the outlawed section. Outlawed: Tennis, running, jogging, or aerobics shoes ( Indian moccasins work well for relaxing after a long day in boots.) 2016 rule book: Classic cowboy/ girl: Boots are required and must be of traditional design with non-grip enhancing (i.e. ―NO Lug‖) soles. Moccasins are not allowed. "B" western: Boots are required and must be of traditional design and embellished with fancy stitching, multi-color fancy design, conchos or spots. Soles must be non-grip enhancing (i.e., ―NO Lug‖) soles. Lace
  9. I remember going to a mountain man weekend and a guy had sewn a zipper into his leather pants. His excuse was "If they'd a had 'em, they'd a used 'em! sic 1972. Same argument been goin' on for decades. Any jeans, long sleeve shirt, work boots make the grade in SASS's world.
  10. Here ya go. Wild West Mercantile has what you need. Bought the Mad Hatter eight years ago and still going strong. Great people to deal with and a great hat. http://www.wwmerc.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?category=6100&orderby=INVENTORY%2Ehot%20desc%2C%20INVENTORY%2Ebrand%2C%20INVENTORY%2Emodel&template=&templatehead=&templatebody=&templatefoot=&templatethumb=&&start=12
  11. Been shooting a double barrel for 10 years. Switching to an 1887 lever shotgun. Slow, but many style points. Castalia
  12. My beautiful wife bought me an 1860 last year for Christmas. My most prized rifle. Biggest surprise in a long while.
