Thanks for the good leads, everyone.  Octagon Barrel, I will post some photos of the display.

I already thought of an Avenging Angel.  I am having one built right now for my own pleasure.  I have also been loaned by other club members the following: Remington .31, Colt 1849, Colt 1862, snub-nose 1860 Army (ala Stoudenmire), a S&W #2, a Colt .22 single shot, a Remington .41 derringer, and a Philidelphia Deringer like the one used on President Lincoln.  Got many others that have been offered for the display.

I appreciate everyone's help.

I finally was able to take out my 76 in 45/60. I found 100 rds of 45/70 brass at a gun show about 2 years ago. I bought a Redding trim die and preceded to cut em down. I cast a bullet that weighed about 330 grains and used  H4895. It was the min. Load. I loaded about 60 rds. I got to the range at 100 yards. My buddy set up a steel target about 4" wide. I loaded the mag tube and preceded to operate the lever. Couldn't get a round on the elevator. So I decided to load them one at a time about 20 rds. Then loaded some more in the the tube then it decided to feed them. Next problem came with the lock up with the lever. Some rounds went threw without a problem others I was afraid of bending the lever. But my friend had been a carpenter for 30 years and was use to swinging a hammer. He was able to get the ones I couldn't fire fire. Once I got all the bugs worked out the sights were shooting about 4" to the left so I aimed to the right 4" and hit that piece of steel every time. So I feel pretty good every problem worked out ok.  Grin

Hey y'all.

Only 360 PE?  A friend of ours had to drill a well...  800 feet down.  Shocked  They still only got around 2.5 gpm.  This year it dried up completely.  Fortunately, they sold it last year to a person "for agricultural development."  5 southern exposure acres "all for their personal use."   Roll Eyes

I am enjoying this turbo car.  We took it out on a nice little road (Trinity Dam Boulevard, for those who may know) today. It took those hills and corners quite well.   Took it on a dirt road a ways, too.  Not quite our old car, (or my truck), but it did okay.
Tomorrow I hope to go fishing out on Lewiston lake tomorrow.  The fish were jumping great tonight.

You can get water reliably with only 21' up there? Can't do that here, unless you drill into an underground stream, and I wouldn't trust them around here anymore. My well is an old one, has 180 feet of pipe. I think they tend to go at least double that now.
The top of the pipe is 6' below ground level and the sand point is 3' long. So it is 30' down. But, the water is less than 10' from the top of the pipe. We are in the low lands. But there is a hill to the east of the property that is taller that our two story house. We live about 100 yards north of the Silver Creek, which is spring feed, so there are springs flowing underground all over here. Some people call Waushara County Wash-a-sand County.

Hadn't really heard that myself, regarding quality, but I'm not sure.

However, early Cattleman had a leaf spring on the hand and more recent have a coil hand spring.  At first only Cimarron Model P's had the coil spring, but then Uberti started putting it in all the Cattleman.  I'm not sure when that was.  At least 10 years ago I think, maybe more.  Also, the Model P had better steel in the cylinder and barrel, and again Uberti decided it was easier to just use the same steel for all the guns so the Cattleman got the better steel as well.  Again, not real sure when, 10 years ago or more I'd guess.

And if you buy a black powder frame model, the older ones use a smaller size basepin screw that is hard to find.  Can't give you a year on that either.  I'm just full of vagueness, aren't I?   Smiley  Maybe some other pards will chime in who know a little more detail.

Welcome to CasCity by the way!

There's a place near me (Sacramento, CA area) called "Mike's Sole Provider."  The guy does good work, and he does it in leather.  I needed some too-short heels built up on some work shoes.  Most places wanted to glue two thicknesses of rubber heels together.  That never even occurred to Mike.  He wanted to build up the heels with stacked leather - the way it should be done.  He isn't cheap, but he isn't as expensive as he could be, either.  A little more than I want to pay, but he'll do it right.

He's also probably half my age, so in at least some places, the art isn't ready to die out just yet.

Buffalo Arms are exceptionally good to deal with - I wanted a scarce mold and they put it on back order and I still had it within four weeks.
Give them a call and see how you get on.

Loaded cartridges

If I needed 45-70 I would buy 60 loaded cartridges plus a mold and gear for reloading. For brass only Bertram Brass is possibly the way to go though I am a bit sceptical of them as I have had some problems with one lot of brass I have from them...the rims are too thin.

Glad you did! Never could figure out how they were going to license or monitor all the ammo from all of us that reload anyway.  W.l. Grin
