  1. I just got a lead for another, let me see if that pans out and I'll get right back to ya, thx!
  2. I'm looking for a pietta 1860 for frontiersman that preferably has had work done to lighten springs and polished up. If someone has an uberti version I'd be interested too (I already have a bunch of pietta cylinders I'd need to trade, hence my preference)
  3. Wow thats great info. I am learning so much. I had also been experimenting with different bullets on the 44-40, and was a little skeptical about lube amounts and such, but I was really surprised how different the ones I got from whyte were from the other I was using in terms of clean up of the rifle barrel.
  4. I'm quickly learning if I ask 10 cowboys a question, I get 10 different answers and they are all probably right in their own way so far I've heard stay away from replica schoefields for bp at all cost as well as schoefield's have served me for 20 years with no issues in fc
  5. I have no illusions of winning a lot, if ever, for sure definitely looking for the wisdom to keep it simple
  6. I'm looking to get a couple of cartrdge pistols (preferably 44-40 to match my rifle) to shoot frontier cartridge when I dont want to shoot the cap and balls. Couple of guys have mentioned they had trouble with some guns vs. others when using real bp. Is there anything to that? I was thinking 1875s.. Obviously they all originally shot bp but I could see how some of the replicas might have more trouble than others with residue, or at least how some might be less prone to issues after a long day of shooting. Sorry if that seems like a dumb question (it seems dumb in my head, but I have no sh
  7. Wanted to thank you all for the advice in this thread, its been like my frontiersman Bible lol. More than a few dollars more and a curious wife on my secret activities later, slightly delayed due to a bout with covid, but I'm now armed up with a couple of 1860s, a, 1866 44-40 and I've built plenty of bp rounds and shells for a few matches. I've practiced up and learned a few more lessons (with many more to learn) and ready to make some smoke in January events should the weather hold out here in west tennessee!
  8. I got in on that midway stock last week for large pistols (pays to wake up early) and just got 1k delivered with tax and shippinng fees, 85 smackers. (I think they were match grade magnum)
  9. Please don't laugh at me, but what do yall mean by annealing the cases and how is that done?
  10. I just bought the through die for my loadmaster. Do you run 38? Use wads?
  11. Jedi i been watching all your videos, learned so much! Thanks much!
  12. This sure seems like the safe approach. I guess I was looking to shortcut which I know better than
  13. i guess next loaded question, pun intended... I use a lee load master progressive to load 38 now.. seems like conventional wisdom says not to use a progressive for real BP because of static, or at least not the powder charge station.. is that true?
  14. This is great, and what I keep thinking everytime i watch a video or read a thread about how awful bp is on firearms!
