That's interesting information - first time I've seen it.  Thanks for the enlightenment.

Actually, no, you don't get pitting or corrosion in a day or two - if you shoot true black powder, and not the fake stuff. While I do clean mine within a day or so of shooting a 2 or 3 day match, even that isn't required.  I've left them a week or more with no issue at all.  As you'll read from others on this forum, they have deliberately left them uncleaned for several weeks (even months in one case if I recall correctly) with no ill effects.

Lot's of misinformation out there.

I regard the 'horror' stories circulated about BP fouling and cleanup, with about the same skeptic eye as the ramblings of 'new age' religions. After all they are those 'heathen' smokeless users. I believe in the Holy Black, proven over a few thousand years; smokeless has barely 200 years of track record.


In my opinion, the worst part of shooting black powder is what happens if you DON'T clean.  Shooting modern smokeless, you don't clean it won't matter much.  Shooting old corrosive primers or black powder and don't clean it, you can have a pitted gun in a day or two.  Of course there IS the rotten eggs smell.  In the distant past I've taken a n 1858 Remington fully apart and run it through the dishwasher (left the grips out...).  Heated drying is really great.

     Sounds like you're getting WWI pretty much covered Pony!  Col Drydock has some inside scoop here methinks.

    Reading between the lines, to me anyways, it looks like some Nagant users may have offended Karl some. Video seems a little punitive in nature. I really like the work Ian and Karl do and hope they aren't letting the flamers get to them too much. But yeah, I think there's some hidden internet drama going on here. More to the story. Like I said before. And we shall see.

All my research has pointed to these cartridges being loaded with what we now would consider 3f powder.  I have broke down several original Frankford Arsenal loadings, and all had the finer granulation.

 F's are a modern designation.  Both the .45-70 and the Colt round were loaded with "Rifle" grade powder, which appears to be what we consider a "3"f granulation.  "Musket" grade seems to correspond to "2" f, with "Pistol" grade being close to 4f as seen in original Percussion "Skin" cartridges.  I believe this to be one reason velocity's seem lower with "Modern" powder, because we are consistently using the wrong granulation.

My Trapdoor 45-70s, loaded with 3f, will shoot to the sights, with 2f loads shooting high.

Dave, any amount of powder(FF or FFF) above about 35 grs. in moderm cases is going to require some degree of compression. Some have actually managed to get 40 grs in a modern case, but I bet they really leaned into the compression die. It sounds like you want to stick with a bullet in the 250/255 range of the original loading. Depending on which bullet you select, some sit a little deeper in the case than others. This will affect your powder charge as well if you are sticking to the maximum cartridge OAL of 1.600. Some revolver cylinders will enable you to exceed that measurement, thus creating a little more case capacity. If you want to duplicate the original velocities ( it sounds like you did in your first attempts), stick with the hotter powders like Swiss or Olde Eynsford. Good luck with your experiments and let us know how you make out.

Thanks for the comments.

These grips were for a Uberti Millenium Matte that I wanted to try making stag grips for (Movie Western look).  Well I did make the two piece grips with a screw but used pins and spacers rather than drilling the trigger guard for a pin.  It all worked out nice.  But, once these flat ivory looking panels were on I took a liking to them and did not grind in ridges and ruts for a stag look.

Now that I have done these grips with the screw attachment look, I am still thinking about really wanting to still do a stag look on a different SAA.

I believe I did see your suggestion about vaseline somewhere in here before I started these and I did use that material.  At one point I thought I missed a spot but it finally came loose with no issues.
