Who reloads SASS ammo commercially?

Recommended Posts

I just found out that Ten-X doesn't offer their Cowboy reloads anymore.  Any other companies reload customer supplied brass?

I don't know if they will reload your brass, but Choice Ammunition makes light recoiling cowboy ammo.

GA Arms has not had anything to sell for some time.  They closed for 7-10 days last week to catch up on their back orders.  They quit loading some time back due to a lack of components.  I believe it was basically primers.

The thing is with "Cowboy" ammunition is, "What is it?"  I have purchased ammo marked "Cowboy" on the box and have found it to be basically the same ammo as their regular stuff, just with a lead bullet and in a different box.  Most notably the Winchester cowboy ammo falls into this category, but so have some others I've found at random over the years.  In fact, I was asked by one pard at my very first shoot what was a using, because it seemed to be way too hot.   "Winchester Cowboy Loads" I responded.   He just shook his head and said, "Not a good idea."

 

On the other hand, last year I discovered HSM Cowboy Action Cartridges when I unexpectedly needed some extra ammo at a shoot out in Nevada.  Here's a pic of the box.

This is actually .44 Magnum, and even though it's factory ammo, it's downloaded like typical CAS loadings.  In fact, it's almost identical to my personal reloads in this caliber.  So much so that I pulled one apart to see what powder is uses.   To my surprise, it was NOT Trailboss, because like I said, the performance seemed identical to my own reloads.   They use Starline brass.

 

Here's their website...

Good stuff, and it really wasn't all that expensive as commercial ammo goes.

it's not that tough to get into reloading your own, and will save you some gold dust in the long run. 

Just sayin...

I agree but I used to use Unique powder for my .45LC and none of that powder can be found...

MC, I understand your desire to use a powder that has worked for you in the past.  I use Unique in my 44 mag reloads for WB and prefer it in that cartridge.  However, there are other powders that will give satisfactory results in large revolver cases and some of these are available.  When reloading components are in short supply we have learned to shoot what is available.  I also use American Select and it is still available.  Hodgdon lists 45 Colt loads for IMR Target and its on sale at Powder Valley.  Try another powder.  You may discover a new favorite.

Shouldn't you tell them that you're "Sponsored" by this company?

For years there were commercial reloaders that offered CAS ammo. Some offered 1.5" long loaded Cowboy leveraction 38's.

 I directed my rifle customer to "T" ammo for his 1.5" cowboy 38's. But, Roy retired so I was recommending Ammo Direct.

Well, they are out of business now

 Here is the  source if you want long loaded 38's for your levergun.

And what difference does that make??

if I buy my Bullets from a Company Or they provide me with bullets, they are still a good company with a great product.

It makes a difference... Sorry you can't see that.

 

But you are correct in the fact that full disclosure has nothing to do with the quality, or lack of, in a product.
