  1. I suggest you start your search with Bullets by Scarlett. I've never bought her loaded ammunition but she's always been very helpful with my powder purchases. She's also active on the Wire.
  2. Looking back over your post now, I’ll take the 300gr .45-70 as well. Sending a response to the PM.
  3. Thanks @Choctaw Silver Wolf SASS 66636! I’m buying some from @Lonestar Hoss, SASS# 50131’ post.
  4. I’d like to buy 100-200 pieces of 32 H&R brass. Preferably Starline, but beggars can’t be choosers as long as it’s in good shape. Thanks!
  5. Thank you to everyone who responded! Taking everyone's information and applying it to the materials I have on hand, I'm going to give a few different loads a go. Some with 405gr bullets because I have them, some with .457 round balls since I too have those. I'm sure it'll be fun to figure out what works and even more fun to shoot the match this fall. Thanks again!
  6. Not too long ago I purchased an H&R Trapdoor with the intent to shoot it in Plainsman. I haven't had the opportunity to do so yet but I'm signed up for it at Land Run. Therefore, I'm needing to load up some rounds using the American Pioneer Powder I have. I know that I could just load the powder to the bottom of the bullet such that it's lightly compressed--like any other APP load--but I think that a sub-load might be perfectly fine for Plainsman distances while saving powder. I'm wondering if the SASS brain trust has any favored .45-70 APP (or blackpowder, generally) sub-loads for Plainsman that they'd share. Thank you!
  7. I got the same response over email.
  8. I emailed Starline last week to inquire, again, about when my two-year-old backorder of 44 Russian would be filled. They politely informed me, again, that they cannot say when those cases will be made but assured me that once they are they'll be shipped in first-come first-served order. I responded to ask if they could tell me if there were a certain number of cases which yet needed to be ordered in order for the production run to happen; they haven't responded yet.
  9. Have you taken a look at MyCaseBuilder Custom Foam? I've used them for work to custom cut for equipment going into Pelican case and Harbor Freight knockoffs. They do very good work.
  10. I’ll take the 44 Russian for $60 shipped. Sending you a PM. Edit: Your inbox must be full. Send me a message and we’ll work it out. Thanks!
  11. I had similar experience with the Redding die when I began loading .44-40. The barrel of my Uberti 1873 slugged at .429 so I was using .430 sized 200gr bullets which I use for .44 Special. When I lowered the Redding Profile Crimp die it would actually pull the bullet from the case before it would apply a crimp. I decided to size those bullets down to .427 and see what happened. After sizing the bullets the Redding Profile Crimp die produced an excellent crimp and no longer pulls the bullets. I’ve since shot them through my Uberti and they’re accurate enough for SASS distances and I don’t feel like I see any significant leading.
  12. If they’re not already spoken for I’ll take the Bisley grips. I’ll send you a PM.
  13. I'll take the Cowboy Carrier. Sending you a PM.
  14. Good evening Charlie, your mailbox is full. Would you accept $200 shipped? Thank you and Merry Christmas!
  15. Ol' #4, since you have two, I'd be interested as well. Sending you a PM with my email.
  16. #2 are for Rugers, correct? If so I’ll take them.
  17. Hahaha well right now I'd settle for just getting out and shooting. My daughter's high school marching band takes my entire fall shooting season! I have a .44-40 1873 and Lightning rifle and I'd like a pair of pistols to match.
