have you crafted the soft point jacketed ones in the 1895 catalog? i think it was that one.

I have worked with some jacketed bullets in the .44-40 but nowhere near to the extent as I have with cast & b.p..

The 1300+ is what I was getting with my Vintage Hunting loads . I have soft lead bullets and they shoot GREAT with the old E BP .
Hope I can get on another nice Buck this Fall .

   Greetings, w44WCF!

   Thanks for the follow-up. I presumed that the BP had been compressed in a solid head
case, with magnum priming, giving wild velocities...

Looks like all the pictures have been lost in the Photo-trash-bucket.  Would you consider going back and replacing the pictures?

load info here was good I believe

my chrono says
 40 grains under 200grain lead = 1355
 39 grains  .......................... = 1340
 36.5 grains ........................ = 1288

This is homemade powder (gives about 40FPS over GOEX) and the 39 & 40 grains are heavy compression   36 grains is a comfy load in a modern 44/40 case

225 grain lead gets 1170 fps
WANO PPP I got 100 FPS less

All charges here are scale weight NOT volume measure.

I was so sorry to hear of John Kort's passing. He was a fine man and helped many of us out with his research and love of the 44wcf. Rest in peace pard.

I'm so sorry that the original photos are now gone (grrr, Photobucket).  I knew I should have printed this off when Jack first posted it.
