"Waspers on fence postees, as big as your fistees" my East Tennessee mother said this all the time.

I dented my garage door using .45 wax bullets over 209 primers. They shot through 8 layers of cardboard, primers tended to back out and jam the pistol. 



You wusnt holdin yer mouth right!

I may know someone that used a '97 with 7/8oz of #8 shot to take care of a white faced hornets nest.  It took the branch right off the tree!

where can one get some of those ? i would be interested in both 38 & 45 ...........

CFD only uses 45 Colt.  45 Colt cases & wax bullets can be purchased from CFDA on their website.  cowboyfastdraw.com

One recommendation is only use Winchester & Rio primers.  They are harder to ignite and don't deform as much as others from gas pressure.  There isn't any recoil to force the case against the recoil shield to remove the bulge.  On a Vaquero the cylinder won't rotate after firing one using Remington 209 primers.  You have to remove the cylinder to remove the fired case.
