  1. I’ve been using 4.5 - 4.6 grains of trail boss with 180 grain bullets for my 45 colt loads for the last few years in temps from 30-90 degree’s. Chrono’s around low 500’s depending on temps. I shoot Classic Cowboy and it has low recoil.  :)

  2. Seems to be a first model Dragoon, based on oval cylinder stops, about 6700 made 1848-1858.  Value depends on collector vs. shooter and condition of item.  The serial dates this most likely a 1849-50 and most were marked " U.S.M.R. " with the " U.S. DRAGOON "  mark on fewer, number unknown.  Getting it lettered, if possible, would tell some of it's history since it could have been used during the Civil War based on the OP's area.  Good Luck.

    My 2 bits.

  3. I own key and electronic entry types and my main one has an electronic lock that requires a 9 volt to operate. It is much more convenient to access. I have had this one for 3 years now, no problem.  If the lock fails it can be removed and a separate special key can be used to open the door.   One other thing, do NOT buy cheap!!!

  4. Hello all you 10g shootists, I just got off the phone with Track of the Wolf and they have brass 10g in 2-5/8" and 2-7/8" as well as all of the wads and shot/powder over cards!  I ordered a bunch.  Brass was $8-10 a piece depending on size. You only live once!  :)

  5. Well since the dead man had cartridges and an older pistol, let's assume the time frame is 1860's to 1880's.  Lever guns, Henry's and 1866's,  were available and used rimfire 44's. He has pistol cartridges and this could be a older Cap and Ball converted to a cartridge, say the rimfire of the rifle. For the 32 S&W I would go with a rimfire or top break of the period.

  6. Well, since the Texas Rangers officially started in 1835 he could be carrying any of them.  Without more of the story line I would be assuming that it is a pocket pistol of some sort kept in a vest pocket or, if larger, kept in a saddle bag.  My 2 cents.  :)
