Hi Coffinmaker
These are some old GI once fired buckshot loads from WW2. There are only about 8 or so of them and I keep them as a curiosity.
I stopped trying to use them after I split a couple from case mouth to about ¼” from the rim which scared me. I am not sure what primer was used either a FA#70 or a mercuric primer which makes the brass so brittle or they are, like me, just brittle from old age.
To tell the truth I am too frugal to buy those buck a piece Magtech cases and have some slue footed RO step on one.
But thanks for the offer any way I can always depend on friends like you to step up when I need help.
Yr’ Obt’ Svt’

I use Cream of Wheat
Loading black powder cartridge with a filler adds more time, effort,steps.....to the reloading process. I use a filler for a specific purpose.
 
I shoot lever action silhouette. When the pistol caliber chickens fly over the backstop and knock over a pig or stick halfway into the backstop as if thrown like a hatchet.....people look at you funny. I never broke a chicken, but it is obvious that full power 44WCF loads are not needed.  I found a load my rifle likes of "approximately"  2/3 Swiss 2F and 1/3 C.O.W.   
Cream of Wheat is cheaper that Swiss BP and the load serves a purpose. The load however is too much trouble to make for all day every day shooting.

F.Y.I.  I was at the range with a N.S.S.A. member shooting reduced loads with corn meal. It smelled like a cook out on a grill !

Greetings all!
Can't help but notice the number of pictures that have been posted of late on our forum.  Thank you all!  But…  once that particular topic gets "buried" beneath the following topics, your pictures become harder to find!  PLEASE, when posting picture of your favorite or unique USFA's, post those pictures to the "Picture Pages" topic as well.  That way they will always stay on top of our topic list, for all to enjoy.
Thanks Again,
CJF

Went to a gun show in Rochester, Minn today (Aug 27), one guy had maybe five/six tables with Winchester original rifles from the 1860 Henry through the 1895, with represenitives of every model in between, sometimes doubled and tripled. Another table was full of lettered '73 Colts and other pre-1900 Colt Models. High dollar items all, in good shape. Made me quiver just lookin at em.....! The $600 in cash I had in my gun show tote bag seemed pretty paltry and puny lookin at em. Nice to look at though, he allowed me to fondle a couple of them though, free of charge.

Will do Mike, Rifle asked about a lot of the CAS City members/posters, if you/they were still on CAS. Advised Rifle I'd check back in with him some day, he advised sounds like a plan. Rifle said he missed the forum and all the posting.

Hey Bunk.
Tell ya what.  Knowing how up to your armpits ya are with projects, I'll save you some time and hassle.  Just package up those pesky WW Brass Hulls and send em on to me.  I just give em a good workout with my brandy new loading equipment and give ya a report back.  I don't think it should take more than ... oh ... say ... a dozen loadings to give you a real good evaluation. 

Wouldn't do that for just anyone ya know.  Special.  Yup.  Grin
