  1. Which reference book for Old West cartridges would you recommend. Both 'Cartridges of the World' and 'Ammo Encyclopedia recommended members on the SASS wire .
  2. WOW! SASS # 686. Thank you for helping keep this sport alive so those that came along late (me for one) are able to participate and have so much fun! I added the 50-140 (50 3 1/4) for Single Shot and Buffalo. The are the same, correct? Thanks Mud Marine!
  3. I added 38-50 to Single Shot (SS) and Buffalo( )B, 40-50 to SS and B, 44 Evans New and Old to Lever Rifle( L)R, 40-82 to SS and LR, 40-70 WCF and 40-70 Sharps to SS and B, 38-70 to LR........... THANK YOU CIMARRON RED!
  4. WOW Mr Lucky I did not expect to see that little sweetie come up on the screen! The short answer is I do NOT know. According to what I have so far; it would NOT be allowed for pistol caliber nor Buffalo. However it seems to qualify for Single shot rifle. It was designed in 1897 and used in a single shot rifle. The Stevens 44 and 44 1/2 did not come along until 1903. Please let me know if you can find a reference to the contrary. THANKS!!!
  5. ,,, Guys I have looked over almost all that I have and also looked the 25.20 up on the Colt forum and according to others this was never a part of pre 1900. Can you help me with a reference point! Good for Rifle but not pistol cal THANKS!
  6. I'm afraid of those Big flies I hear you have up there that actually take a bite out of you!
  7. Ironhead you would be right to do so. I must have written down 405 grains for something and let my fingers do to much walking. Thanks for the catch! PS, thanks for a great Long Range match in Alabama at the Southeast Regional!
  8. Most of us down South are lucky with 200 and 300 yard range availability. Go to Quigley Montana match and you can shoot 1000 and 805 yards
  9. Jabez, Danged if you aint right! 33 WCF used in 1886 Win but not developed until 1902 35 WCF used in 1895 but not developed until 1903 Corrections made. Nice catch! Thanks!
  10. Thanks Three Foot Johnson. If you ever see any supporting documentation, please pass it along.
  11. Added. Done. Nice catch. Thank you! P.S. We have never met but I have a lot of respect for you based on your reputation and knowledgeable answers to partner's questions!
  12. If you find some information as Griff listed then I would be happy to include on the list I am putting together. I am certainly NOT THE expert and want to go with information that we can all document in some way. Thank you
  13. All cartridges that can be /are legally used for SASS Long Range Competition
  14. I am working on a Long Range informational packet and one of the areas I would like to detail are the calibers used in Buffalo and Single Shot categories. Listed here is my second try at finding most if not all the calibers used back in the day and SASS legal. Note that Single shot includes all those listed and Buffalo only includes those .375 and larger. Thanks in advance for any and all assist! 25-35 WCF 25-36 Marlin 30 U.S. (30-40 Krag, 30 Army) 30-30 WCF (30 WCF) 32 Special 32-40 Ballard 33 WCF 35 WCF 38-55 Marlin and Ballard 38-56 WCF 40-100 405 WCF 40-60 WCF 40-65 40-90 Sharps 43 Spanish 44-100 44-100 Ballard 44-105 Sharps (necked) 44-77 Sharps 44-90 Rem 45-100 Ballard 45-100 Sharps 45-110 Sharps 45-120 Sharps 45-125 Sharps 45-60 WCF 45-70 Gov WCF 45-75 WCF 45-75-Sharps 45-90 Sharps 50 Gov (old 50-70 Musket Caliber) 50-90 Sharps 50-100 Sharps 50-110 Sharps 50-70 Gov 56-50
  15. Very, very nice!!! I plan on watching them all.
  16. Thanks Tyrel! I may go that route if I cannot find one that also has the wind flap release on top.
  17. Any suggestions on where to find telescoping rod umbrellas for the Ryder mounts.. The tube diameter needs to be 7/8 and all I am finding are way to big. Mine finally gave it up to strong winds at the Great Alabama SE Regional. A very very nice match
  18. Lots. However,, Red Skelton would be at the top of my list. Also for true hero type celbs I would go with one of my home down folks. Mr. Gary Powers. Anybody know who Gary is? Recent movie made about him, the U2 pilot that was shot down overseas
  19. More than I thought after I started writing them down. At the top of my list are Red Skelton, Dolly Parton and Gary Powers
  20. Just received my dues renewal notice and brand new membership card. The second sentence states "The card is a brand new design that is durable and packs a lot of benefits." Does anyone know if after you pay the dues you get a second mailing with the "durable" card? The one I received is on the same paper as the invoice and appears to be standard copy paper weight with no special coating.
