Cheyenne Ranger, 48747L Posted January 28, 2017 Share Posted January 28, 2017 Got one that has stumped us: Ammo is .45 Colt loaded to mild SASS loads--all same batch of ammo using 200 gr Lee RNFP bullets Revolvers (all .45 Colt): Uberti open top conversion 1860 (friend’s) Uberti Bird’s Head (friend’s) Pair of Cattleman (mine) so all the guns are Ubertis. The ammo works fine in the Cattleman; no hang ups, no FTF, smooth cocking between shots In the open top and Bird’s Head after the first shot both lock up. We can only get hammer back about half way. Cylinder will not turn. Have to remove the cylinders by pulling base pin. Things we checked: Bolt works as it is supposed to. Revolver operates fine without ammo. Cocks smoothly and no hang up of cylinder. With one round in chamber will shoot it and cylinder will spin. (Ammo also works fine in Ruger Vaqueros Old Models FWIW) This is my standard pistol load for about last 5 years. What’s has us stumped is ammo works fine in two of four pistols but not all of them Hard to believe it’s the ammo but then hard to believe it’s a firearm problem, also.
