From my post in the Archives forum:

New folks questions are most often about loads.

I/m going to search out the regular board and dig up what I can, but I'm also going to start a thread there to post loads and I will divide them up by caliber.

Also I know some do like to shoot Nitro loads, so I'll have a seperate area for them.  I will ask that any of these be from a santioned loading manual and I ask that you quote the source.

This may take a little while, but I will work on it as I have time, object is to get a good data base to point newcomers to.


I will also search the board as I have time.

Why not ask that posters quote the scource and give a link/address to a web site too?
I never use a load unless it's approved by the powder maker.
I'm to pretty to take a chance ya know!

If you go back and reread my post, you'll notice I asked that for Nitro loads. Roll Eyes  And if you understand black and the subs you will no it involves a fulll case.

My mistake, I assumed that you were talking about smokeless as the 'Nitro' loads are actually the early Cordite loads.

No, any load using a Nitrocellulose based load were in the time period sometimes called Nitro loads, it is a term I prefer rather than smokeless which is not always true. Roll Eyes

BTW in English gun nomenclature nitro often, but not always mean cordite loads.  Some English rounds have always used other than cordite after the switch from black powder. Wink

Jeepers Creepers! I been gathering up components for my buff rifle (1874 Quigley) and I am having a tuff time finding loads or those BP manuals on the shelfs at the gun stores. I picked up some black powder in 2 types, also some of that "triple seven" and Trail Boss too. I would sure like to find a manual on loads for this rifle and the Rolling Block Creedmoor.

The 'manual' you're looking for is: "Shooting Buffalo Rifles of the Old West" by Mike Venturino - hunting loads, target loads; all you need to know and more.

Hi.

I ordered mine from Amazon.com,but I am thinking that PJ would be more pleased to get it from a Canadian Source, and I would guess that the book  company that St Charles plugs would have it ...

Venturino didn't say much about 'paper' cartridges in his book, nor did Sellers. At least not on how to make them up. But, it ain't rocket science ....
Roll tubes out of any combustible material (newsprint, printer paper, etc.), glue them shut. Inset the lubed bullet, pour in the powder charge and either twist or fold over the ends. I found no practical advantage in using nitrated paper.
You can make them chamber length or over long and allow the 'cigar cutter' of the breech face to shear off the end and expose the powder. That causes some spillage and powder accumulation where you don't want it.

Before inserting the next round, I always check to see f there is a bit of glowing paper, usually where the glue was applied. A quick blow clears it.

If your rifle is a .50, it's even easier. Roll a lubed bullet with a 60 gr .54 calibre Pyrodex pellet in the paper - done.
