Seems like if you're gonna make a 1900 era sporter, you probably don't need a military style bent bolt, but maybe a Mannlicher style "butter knife" handle would be better for the period.
I did some research, and from what I can tell (my research has in no way been exhaustive), the early John Rigby sporters had regular bolts.  He was already building sporters out of them in 1898, and the one I've been specifically looking at is a small ring 98, like the Kar 98.  It was a small ring action that took a large ring barrel.  Another interesting thing about that rifle is that it had the military pattern sights and a stepped barrel.  From what the site says, Rigby bought barreled actions from Mauser and then built sporters out of them.  The one I'm using is actually a Husqvarna and has set triggers.

Annie Noah was Cathy Parrino. She was also a member of the Blue River Regulators and the wife of Pelon. She was a good friend of mine. She passed on around 5 years ago.

This is the kind of info I've been looking for.  Thanks Cliff.  I've been looking at this kit but didn't know if there are things I needed in addition to besides the dies, brass, powder and bullets. 

No it is pretty much all you will need to get started except for the dies. I don't have a current addition Speer manual but if it's like the older ones the first part of the manual walks you through the loading process and safety issues to be aware of.

The Lee dies are very good and in fact for many calibers I prefer them however in 44-40 I happen to prefer the RCBS cowboy dies and crimp with the Lee factory crimp die. Don't attempt to crimp and seat the bullet at the same time with that caliber and all of the troubles that many people speak of with the 44-40 go away.

For the 45 colt get the Lee carbide die set.

Shoot half-hitch, I'd be lost without at least a pot of coffee.  What gets me is when I go to my son's house and all they have is green tea.  Namaste!  Go to my brother-in-law and he has one of those fancy things that costs a couple of hundred bucks and only makes one cup at a time.  On top of that all they keep on hand is fancy yuppie stuff.  "Coffee!  Black!"  Met a couple of war buddies up at that fancy store where a cup of coffee costs an arm and a leg, ordered 'just plain ol' coffee' and they looked at me like I blasphemed.  They also have a sign on the door saying something about 'No Guns'.  Ain't been back...sit at home with my own pot.

As to those silly cylinder pins...shortened all of mine almost right out of the box.  Durn foolishness to have to meet a drop test!

I don't think there's any better coffee than what we can brew ourselves. I still drink the same brand that my parents and grandparents drank when I was a kid and still make it in an electric percolator.  I still have my old camp stove pot too but haven't used it in a while.

I do have a Kuerig (I guess that's what you're talking about) but I don't use it often and, when I do, it's usually because I was too lazy to go to the store to buy coffee when I know I'm almost out.

I haven't decided whether I want to shorten the pins or not.  I don't shoot competitions (yet) and as long as I know what the deal is now, I guess it won't be a problem.

The rain started about 8 pm. It is really coming down. The lightning knocked out the satellite dish, but the power is still on. It gets really dark in here when the power goes off because of the dark paneling.

Looking for a good load for sass. I have switched from a 43a bushing to a 34 bushing (MEC). The problem is that I am not getting crimp.

What loads do you use? Wads, powder bushing etc.
