Well PJ, if you want extremes in temps. Come on down to The Mojave Desert.
Got a great private range about 15 minutes from my place, and we can shoot out to 600+ yds anytime.

I live in Buffalo NY and we have a reputation for snow but this winter we only got what the weather guy called normal amounts.  But we did have a very cold second half of January and first half of February.

DJ - very good point about the .50-45 being centerfire. I'm so used to mine having a centerfire conversion block, that I kind of forgot about that difference - doh!

That being said, it's still a bit baffling. Mine are loaded to around 1.683" plus or minus .002". An original cartridge I have measures 1.620". That makes mine .063" longer overall. I found mine to be VERY finicky about overall length. It will not tolerate a cartridge length variaton of more than .005" from what I use. So there is no way it will function with a cartridge anywhere near original length. Granted, the bullets are very different.

Looking at the original block, I see no evidence of modification to work with a longer cartridge. Perhaps you are right, the just used the longer reamers because they were on hand. By 1871 the original .56-50 reamers were worn out or scrapped. We'll probably never know the full story of these oddball rifles. But I do know that it shoot surprisingly well.

You might want to get a lower front sight installed while you're waiting, Coal Creek.

I can assure you that the sights were not the cause of this mishap.  Embarrassed

  Same thing happened to me after I purchased the Colt 3rd Generation I mentioned above. I sold it for a $700 profit and bought a better quality revolver.

I bought my 3rd gen Peace maker 44 Special 4 3\4 as new in the box unfired for 1300.00 .
I sold it a year latter for 1800 .
And bought me two Uberti 44 Special Cattlemen 4 3\4 for 700 too shoot.
I love the guns and pocketed some cash to boot .

As a follow up to this, I am taking advantage of Competition Electronics' repair policy:

"Competition Electronics will recondition to working order any product returned to us regardless of condition for no more than current retail price (plus shipping) if it is still part of our current product line."

They tell me that even though "someone" shot a 200 grain bullet through it end-to-end, they will repair or replace it.  I shipped it off to them and I'm waiting to hear what the repair bill will be.  They tell me that the turn-around is usually about a week, not including shipping time.  That's not too bad, so I'm saving a few Krag rounds to shoot it shoot over it when I get it back.
