  1. I've used it for years in 12 ga. shotgun trap loads as well as a few different pistol cartridge loads. I have found it to be pretty clean burning.
  2. I use 5 gr. of TB with a 240 gr. lead bullet in a 44 Spcl case for a plinker load in my Ruger Blackhawk 44 Mag. Works well.
  3. I have to agree with Smokestack. I prefer and use Yellow lenses. Helps me pick up the target faster.
  4. I have and shoot 32-20, 38 Spcl, 45 Schofield, and 45 Colt in various cowboy guns and my first powder choice in all of those calibers is Trail Boss. I even use Trail Boss in my Sharps 45/70. Now my second powder choice is Unique simply because that is what I use to reload my shotgun shells with. All of the Uberti 1873 rifles I observe, including mine, work pretty well with 38 Special cartridges so I don't quite understand why you jam with 38's. You probably just need to experiment a little with cartridge length. Also 125 or 130 grain TC bullets will work just fine and are a lot cheaper on the wallet than 158 gr bullets.
  5. I shoot SxS shotguns. My cart just isn't set up well to transport the shotgun in it with action open. I cut two pieces of PVC pipe longer than the barrels. I dropped them into the empty barrels and drew a line around the top. Then I put the full length snap caps I have into the chamber, closed the action, dropped the PVC pipe in, and drew a line around the pipe again. Between the lines I painted it red. If unloaded you only see white on the PVC pipes. If the shotgun is loaded you see red. My problem was solved, and I have never heard a complaint from any of the local clubs that I shoot at. I also made the same barrel rods out of dow rods and used a red magic marker.
  6. So what if you have one like me under s/n 90000. Can I still get one?
  7. I guess I'm lucky. I send out an email each spring to all of the members of our sportsmen's club asking for volunteers to join the Cowboy Committee at the club, and to help set up and tear down the stages each month for the CAS shoot. I usually get 10 members who volunteer to serve on the committee. Now 90% of these folks don't even participate in our sport. Each month I send out an email asking for help setting up on Saturday, and tearing down on Sunday. I usually have 4 committee people to help each of the days every month. They all have a standing invitation to try shooting a stage after the match. All I need from the cowboy shooters is to help with the usual stage duties.
  8. Had an original Winchester '92 in 32WCF relined by Redman about 3 years ago. They did a fantastic job at a very reasonable price!
  9. Mine came from one of my favorite western movies "Winchester 73". Cept'in I don't need a hyphen to sit on......
  10. In addition to the reasons above I replaced the two piece firing pins in my Marlin 94's simply because I found that last second click when closing the bolt when the two firing pin pieces were lining up to fire annoying.
  11. I have a Bond Texas Defender with a 38/357 barrel that I like a lot.
  12. I have a pair of Taylor & Co. 1873's in 32-20 that I shoot now and then.
  13. We're pulling for you! We just had our first club shoot of the year yesterday here in south central PA. It was a small group, and little chilly starting in the mid 30's with a stiff breeze at times, but the sun was shining and we had a great time!
  14. Around 1970 I bought a Savage 19 NRA .22 LR for $100, which was a lot of money for a .22 back then. I still have that old .22 yet today.
  15. .22 Rim Fire (Shot as any official SASS category except Frontier Cartridge, Frontiersman or Classic Cowboy, but using 22 pistols and 22 rifle) Outlaw Josey Wales
