Thank you all. I will probably do one another time for fun, but since I picked up the full kit complete this time, I'll probably spend my leather skill time making another pocket holster for my new CCW gun.
Brass: I saw the ad for the starline, but I'm probably only going to be able to retain 75% of the brass since some is shot with a lever gun. I'd really rather not pay more than $0.10/piece or so, otherwise reloading it is kind of cost prohibitive. Not including brass, I can load 1,000 lead cowboy rounds for about $155. I can buy reloaded hollow point .45 Colt hunting/defense rounds for $0.45 /each, so if I had to pay $0.20/$.25 for a piece of brass, I think it would be worth it to buy it with a bullet in it, and reload them as I go. I dunno though, that's me. I'm not into brand new brass. If I only shot revolvers I guess it would be okay, but I don't.
