Looking for the best in Black Powder Revolvers? Look no further than the Ruger Old Army! 7 1/2 inches of blued steel that would make Augustus himself envious! These are both 140 series. .44 Caliber. 6 shot cap’n ball. Springs give a perfect click-clack-click when cocked and trigger break is crisp on both. $1,250 shipped for the pair.
Shooting with the bunch last nite. One of the guys had 44-40 rounds loaded with black powder and moly coated bullets. This resulted in extreme fouling in the bore which was difficult to remove after only 12 shots. He also shot some rounds loaded with smokeless and the same moly coat bullets. These smokeless rounds did not cause fouling of the bore. OK; the answer is obvious but I wonder if anyone else has had this problem.
I'm sure this has been addressed before, but a search doesn't turn anything up. I want to load a BP synthetic (APP or maybe 777) on my Dillon 1050 for 38's & on my Dillon 650 for 32's. But, I don't want to blow myself up. I've heard comments on both sides of the fence. Can't do it, vs. "I've been doing it for years with no problems". Needless to say, it would save me LOTS of time when loading the little woman's bullets. I've never heard of anyone having an explosion doing this, but I don't want to be the first either. I can load lots of smokeless 38's & 32's in an insignificant amount of time, so it's really a drag using the dipper for every bullet when loading BP. If I decide not to use the 1050 & 650, I have bought a Lee perfect powder measure to speed up the loading, but I sure would like to use the P. presses. I understand the APP & 777 aren't as likely to clump as GOEX, but I have bought a strainer just to be sure. Share your knowledge & experience with me, please.
