  1. New to this sport. I picked up a couple new Cimarrons in 44 Spec and 45 Colt. Both shoot low, especially the 44 at 8" at 30 feet. The 45 about 4". Both shoot right 1-2" with all loads, factory as well. Both group about an inch with the loads I decided on. I tried different ways to grip, all the same. I keep the front sight parallel with the top of the notch. Do I have the right sight picture? I heard about filing the front sight but want to hear from the experienced shooters first. What can I do about the windage? Thanks

    44 Special

    New to this sport and acquiring pistols and rifles. I have a lot of experience with the 44 Special but see that it doesn't seem to be as popular in the sport and not as many rifles and pistols in this caliber. Is there a reason why? Probably a dumb question but I would like to know the drawbacks before I invest in a Model P. I already have a Marlin in .44 mag round barrel bought when they first reintroduced Ballard rifling that accounted for a couple deer in Northern Michigan. I will load black powder. I shoot cast bullets as well. Would really appreciate input, thanks.
  3. I had a similar issue with CCI primers in my Shiloh Sharps, they have a hard cup. Switched to Federals and they worked perfect.
  4. I would take lot #1, the .45 stuff . Looks like it will fit in a flat rate box. Seems like $68 will cove everything. I am a new member and don't know where to go from here. Mean Gene 989-350-0397. Let me know where to send the $
  5. Thanks a ton! I'm going to start ordering. Just ordered a Cimarron P in 45 Colt /45 acp. Going to try a couple of the molds mentioned above. Gene
  6. Just joined minutes ago. Although new to Cowboy shooting I've been an avid shooter including bullet casting for 51 years. I've decided on a .45 Uberti Colt single action "clone" of some type [any advice there would be helpful]. Haven't loaded that caliber and would like to know the groove diameter and recommended molds of different weights. I will be shooting BP and smokeless. Thanks
