I believe the new brasser's have better QC now than in the past. Just my recent observation, ya understand.

The first few boxes I bought 6 or 7 years ago were crap.

And to think I was supposed to be there yesterday/today.  Shocked

Afternoon all.  Currently 95 in my part of the world, not a cloud in sight.  Though apparently they had a couple tornadoes up by my aunt in Washington.  That's a little odd, if you ask me. 

Planning on going fishing tonight, but that may not pan out.  We'll see.

While I understand the theory behind not crimping for rounds used in single-shot guns, I strongly recommend crimping, if at all possible, as well as insuring the bullet is tightly held by the case neck, especially with smokeless loadings! Both crimping and a tight neck interference help insure there is enough delay in shot-start to insure proper ignition of the powder. Failure to get good ignition can result in hangfires that can even result in overpressures if the bullet stops in the forcing cone or somewhere in the barrel. For jacketed Hornady bullets, I used to apply a new crimp groove using a knurling tool.  May not be necessary with cast bullets as a light crimp can be applied that will actually compress the bullet side sufficiently to hold the slug in place.

Nothing wrong with using a wire spring as a quick fix. I saw that write up in an old gunsmithing book in my office library & again in Brownells gunsmthing "kinks" series of books.

Personally, I've probably had a half-dozen or so of the flat hand-springs break in the past 20 years. All but one in the Colt type of revolver (Uberti 1875). BUT,  before I put a new spring in place, I first see if substituting the broken piece of spring will function the revolver correctly....it often works nicely. If so, I go with that until it fails. No problem if the spring fails during a match, as mentioned above - lowering the barrel when cocking does the trick.

Eventually I will break down and splurge from my parts inventory and use a brand new hand spring. Usually do this over winter "break" from matches.  A few years ago I ran across a nice deal on bulk quantity of in-process hand assemblies(Just parts) & now have many spares. From these, I can fabricate Colt or Remington, double or single hands all from parts. Can grind them down to fit pocket models, too.

My oldest Remington C&B (New Model Army) is a kit-built Pietta (1981). Still has all original parts....and wear on the cylinder that proves it's no safe queen.

I'd have to say the most common hand spring failures have been with the factory Pietta 1860 C&B revolvers in my collection.

I use an old piece of spring to tap out the old one. Sometimes need to grind a bit of the steel where it's peened. A small knife or utility blade can be helpful, too. Sometimes I use a vice to help swage the new spring into place.

  I'm glad it went well and appreciate your range report.

  I don't begrudge folks being cautious but for all the dire warnings of shooting these old Winchesters I've never known of anyone submiitng first-hand knowledge of one being destroyed by shooting proper smokeless loads.
So enjoy your rifle! As soon as temps have begun dropping below 95 by the time I get off work in the evenings I'll start shooting mine again. I've yet to stretch my 38-40's beyond 200 yards so that's next on the agenda.

Here I'm shooting my Colt 1878 12 gauge.  Note the lady with clipboard to the right on the last 4 shots.  And this is BlackMZ.   Grin

BTW, I also picked up a Galco Kingtuk IWB Holster for my 1911. I'll see if I like it.
