I have no experience with the 40-60... Brian Pearce addressed the 40-60, 45-60 and the 45-75 Replicas in an article that appears in the 49th Edition of Lyman Reloading Handbook. Of these three rifles that Brian tested (all 3 were Chaparral's) he states that the 40-60 had a much flatter trajectory than the 45-60 and the 45-75. On page 103 he shows a loading table guide for the 40-60, the powders that he used were IMR-4198, AA5744, AA2015, Trip 7, Varget and Trail Boss. Of these loads he states he had the best accuracy with 28 grains of IMR-4198 under a 292 grain RNFP cast bullet and he also claimed good results with AA 5744. The rifles were furnished by Charter 2000 distributor at that time. The brass cases used for his test was Jamison brass.  Ken Waters also addresses the 40-60 in his book on "Pet Loads".  Waters used 45-70 brass and then used a form and trim die for sizing the brass and or fire form 45-70 brass leaving cases full length @ 2.10".  Waters also has a closing chapter on the 40-60 and here he addresses using jacketed ammo.  As stated I have never shot the 40-60 but everything I have read about it sounds good.  Waters claims it is an EXCELLENT deer hunting rifle.

Thanks all.

Now it seems to be a toss up between the Slix Springs and Whisper Springs. Both appear to do the job without noticeable wear and both get good reviews.

Does anyone with the Whisper Springs have to readjust the tension of the wire over the years?

Got this from Milk Creek last week.  Does not show in photo but there are 2 rows of braid indicating CPT Rank on each sleeve

Dirty Billy made the 1872 Shako with the 76 Cross Rifles.

Congrats on the German pistol.  I have my 1873 St Etienne's working pretty good now with 44 Russian rounds.

Since the St Etienne 1873's were only made in single/double action combo they can not be used at major SASS matches.

There are two local clubs who allow me to use them at local matches and I shoot them single action only in Frontier Cartridge.

I find them very comfortable to shoot.

It would be a real treat for me if he would show up with my Cimarron 76 in 45-75 that has been on order.

Litl Red,

Yep, my '75 will also shoot less than 1 MOA.  I've shot a couple of 3-shot groups at 5/8" using only their No. 2 tang sight.

I agree with Blair on this... leave the original sight in place and you won't need a filler blank... the blanks are hard to put in place without scarring the rifles finish.  The original buck horn sight will not interfere with the Tang sight. You just need a longer screws for mounting the Tang sight.  I might add that make sure the Tang sight is indexed properly, otherwise your field of vision thru the tang sighting hole will be distorted.  Another note... I adjust my buckhorn  V slot (Lor R) to align up with my Tang sight... this just helps my get the correct sight picture everytime with the Tang... do what works for you.

Back out the garage 'n start down the street when it's cold out 'n my pressure light's lit. Point it towards the range, tires get warm it goes out. Get in ta go home after she's sat 'n the light's on. Get ta Wakefield 7 er 8 miles east 'n it's off the rest the way home. I quit werrin' 'bout it.

Had a grand time huntin' with cuz Tom this morn. Went ta the GC 'n caught HK on the branch where he likes ta take live things warm 'n fuzzy or cold 'n scaly 'n bodily rip 'em apart. A real photographer, Jim Yenello, was all set up 'n waitin' for HK ta fly. While I decided ta take pictures of a duck, HK hauled a$$. I got one shot. Took a walk along the river 'n found 'im in 'nother tree 'bout a hundred years from where 'e was. Was gettin' a shot lined up, shifted my stance 'n stepped inna freakin' hole. While I was cussin' the hole, HK vacated the premises.

No luck at other spots. Went 'n ate hot dogs.

Spaghetti w/ hunks of smoked sausage buried in it 'n grated Parmesan. Sandman's hidin' 'round the corner 'n be sneakin' up on my l'il ole self anytime now.....

I have a Cimarron Pietta Frontier old model 4 3/4 in 44 WCF, which I like a great deal. It's a good companion to my Uberti '73 in the same caliber. I've been thinking that an old model 7 1/2 in 45 Colt might be in order.  I've always been partial to shorter barrels, but that is just so classic. (The auto correct function on my phone tried to make that "classy".  Maybe the phone knows what it's talking about.)
