Pit Bull Tex

Thanks to the cowboys.

Recommended Posts

I would like to thank all the cowboys that helped me get started reloading 44-40.From the press and the dies to brass to bullets.I was going to pat my self on the back but it hurt my arm and it was the info that I got from the cowboys.I just loaded some 44-40 for the very first time.I did mess up the first case.I loaded 24 more rounds and did not mess up any more.I load 12 rounds with .430 bullets and 12 rounds with .428 bullets.Will see what shoots the best in my rossi.I am proud of my self that I did not mess up but one case.Thanks again.

Congrats

It's not as hard as some make it to be

But your not loading 44-40 if you don't screw up a few cases

Betting on the 428 also

Good on you.

I've been loading 44-40 for 15 years.

Don't remember crushing a case, till

last week, bought 100 new starline cases.

In the process of loading managed to crush 20 of them.

Stopped several times and checked dies and cleaned dies

still can't figure out what happened.

Only the new ones were damaged.

Same thing happened to me with the last NEW batch of Starline brass. Others were complaining about .38's and .45's with other problems too!

Hey TPB

.430 200gr bullets shoot just great out of my 20" barreled 44/40 Rossi 92 with both smokeless and APP.

PBT is a good Cowboy...always giving, caring and looking out for others.

Glad you had minimal problems with your .44-40 reloads.

Best
