  1. RR if you remember last year at WR we have concrete or block on some of the stages on the east end of the range they have wood covering the concrete behind the loading and unloading table to eliminate splatter in case of an AD.

    I know that and I shoot Duelist, Double. So you are saying you can't shoot Duelist, Double in Gunfighter?

    You cannot shoot Duelist in the gunfighter category, you can shoot Double duelist in gunfighter. Gunfighter you must shoot 5 shots with left hand and five shots with right hand.

    my son wanted to shoot black powder after watching The Blue and the Grey.  We fired 5 rounds out of the 1860 and by the end the wedge was loose and it took a while to get it out but can not take the barrel off.   It pulls out so the end piece it sits on comes half way through the hole for the wedge but no further nor will the wedge go back in to fire it. Any thoughts?  


    If not I may let it go cheap.  

    Is that the first time you've fired the gun? Or have you fired it before with something other than BP?


  4. I will sometimes cook ribs at 275  for about 3 hours in a ribbed bottom, covered pan until they are fall off the bone tender. use whatever seasoning you want including a little liquid smoke. They can be frozen in containers or plastic wrap.Then when you ready to eat them thaw and then broil them.

    I've been reloading longer than Dillon has been making presses and dies.  The store where I bought my first reloading outfit, carried RCBS.  And when I bought my first 550, I got one set of dies with it... the rest I just continued using my RCBS.  I have a couple of Redding sets.  I've been given Lee dies for a couple of cartridges I don't load much... and FWIW, they're fine.  But, having loaded with RCBS dies for over 40 years... I've come to trust them.  I just bought a set of 44-40 dies, loaded my first 50 or 60 rounds on my single stage, (haven't received the Dillon caliber conversion set yet), and they loaded this new brass, with NO issues, using 3 different bullet weights and shapes.  I did crush one case on the Lee Handloader making a dummy round, but I had a small divot in the mouth before I started.  Should've straightened it out before I seated the bullet, but...   wanted to see just how easily 44-40 cases crushed as compared to my 45 Colts.


    Bottom line... anyone asks, I'll always recommend RCBS, but... have some loads where I prefer the Redding sets (bullet guides, micrometer adjustable seaters, etc., used for match grade ammo in 5.56 and 30.06), and others where I don't care that the dies are Lee (25ACP & 38S&W).  I have some cartridges, (38 Spl & 45ACP), where I have both RCBS and Dillon dies, have loaded with both, and the finished product is indistinguishable.  

    I load 44-40 on a 550 and do not need the caliber conversion kit the 45 colt kit works fine.






    Another thought, I have been in this sport for a lot of years and have seen many changes. I shoot BP and Frontiersman and have for many years. I love to see folks come to the Black side to enjoy the smoke. Why not let more come into the fun. What is the harm of letting folks use the equipment they may have instead of having to buy all new guns? 



    You don't need to change category rules to let someone enjoy the sport of shooting BP. I shot BP for many years before I even knew about SASS.  It is not something that is exclusive to one category.  You can shoot BP in ANY category.


    PS and almost any gun.

  8. I've only been shooting outlaw a little over 2 years. It is a blast. I shot for a while duelist then to double duelist then finally to gunfighter.

    It's probably a standard 24 1/4"  barrel.


    This is what a 30" Rossi looks like;


    This is a custom 454 casull. The only Rossi parts used was the action.IMG_3066.thumb.JPG.8ecb0f6bc05bac027ca78e9fceabae3f.JPG
