Ellis - pretty straight forward: a case  Grin - LR primer - 68 to 70 gr of Fg or FFg black powder - compress the powder column 0.2 to 0.3" - a 0.60 fiber or 1/8" felt wad and then seat the bullet

As for expanding the case of a 0.0011 to o.002 neck tension on the bullet use an M die or your compression plug.  Don't crimp the case, just remove the bell on the case

WWE; You need to get casting equipment, and lead.  A whole new topic.

Unless you buy already cast bullets and there are several sources. If all you can get is .458, I'd try a hundred or so. You might be surprised.

Good advice.  I intend to hold out for the parts I want and need.  Eventually, they should turn up.  It's not as if I'm looking for the Holy Grail.

Thanks.  I have that most of that information.  Problem is unless you know the dimensions of the barrels you can't tell one from the other from the pictures or the description.  The forearms also seem to vary from photo to photo.  Mine has a tapered barrel with a relatively small OD at the muzzle.  However, I don't have anything to compare it with.  Hoping to find some dimensions to help figure it out.

The Trapper is also mentioned in the catalog having a 16" barrel...  Just in case .

Doesn't require anything special to load .459 bullets, just standard reloading dies, plus an expander die made for cast bullets, basically a 3 die set, same as loading pistol ammo.

What is needed to load .459 bullets into .45-70 Cartidges?
-I have had the gun swaged; it needs a softer .459.

-I have a new Lee 459-522-3R double bullet mold ...

What else do I need?

As per the 2005 catalog, a baby carbine differs in that it has a "light weight forearm and special tapered barrel - both to reduce overall weight.  That is the only differences mentioned.   I might try to get a photo posted of the forearm of the baby carbine and the standard carbine to see the difference.   It appears to me that the baby forearm is rounded in the front of the wood and the standard has the same lip front and back of the wood.   The barrel length of the standard and baby carbines are both 20" advertised.

I drug my USFA Lightning carbine in .44-40 out of the safe a few days ago and figured I might as well shoot it.  Does anyone (Gary G?) know how to tell the difference between a regular USFA carbine and the baby carbine?  Doesn't make any difference for shooting, but I am curious if it is a baby carbine.

Afternoon y'all.

Picnic thing went well enough.  Didn't win any of the raffles I entered. 
Afterwards, we went and spent an hour or so on the beach.  Got wet, watched some guys catching fish I've never even heard of, much less seen.  I also hurt my arm.  Pulled it throwing -of all things- a jellyfish.  What can I say.  I'm talented. Roll Eyes

City trip went okay.  Hot and boring, but other than that not too bad.

Five days to deer season.
