Unless something completely unforeseen happens between now and Wednesday, I will be in attendance.

Any idea how many are registered?

I'm considering making a trip there this weekend for the 5th Saturday shoot.
Can you recommend a place to stay?  PM if you like.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I looked at the possibility of a Long Island Railroad connection, but the best fit I can find for CIRR is Coney Island Railroad.  It looks like the LIRR and CIRR had some business interactions in the late 1800's, but mostly they seemed to be competitors.

What is the era of the LIRR Smith & Wesson you have seen, and how did the stamping appear?  Any photos?

I wonder if there are any good sources on the arms and practices of railroad police.

The wife is now on her way back from Milwaukee, but will have to brave 110 in Phoenix before heading on to our balmy 95.  She probably won’t even work up a sweat, as the layover is only 50 minutes.  On second thought you can work up a sweat running between gates!

Dirty cases and blowback is a common occurrence with 45 Colt especially with light CAS loads. There are no easy answers.

Others have gone to neck sizing only to avoid blowback. It works, but I don't care for it- especially for CAS where you want high reliability.

We finally settled on the Redding dual ring sizing die for 45 Colt. The case body is not worked as much resulting in a larger diameter and better seal.  Case life is better too.

Unique is a good 45 Colt powder when used with heavier loads. Do you have any other powders available? I use Trailboss and Red Dot with light loads with good results. 700x and Clays may also work better than Unique with 200 gr bullets.

This has been an interesting thread!

We have several different 45 Colts in the family, pistols and rifles. My Elder Statesman father prefers to use 4 3/4" OMV Rugers. We developed a light 200 gr load to ease the recoil. He is quite pleased with it.

The bullet is from an RCBS 45-200-SWC mould. It is a clone of the Lyman 452460 semi-wadcutter. The Lee 90310 is similar but different in several respects.  These bullets are normally associated with 45 ACP.  My alloy is close to 50/50 +.75 tin with a BHN of about 10.

The RCBS has a short nose and a long bearing surface. This allows the bullet to seat deeply in the cavernous Long Colt case. As a consequence, bullet tension is higher. There is no crimping groove which has not been an issue in our experience. We use a light roll crimp into the front driving band with a Lee FCD. A taper or profile crimp should work equally well.

We settled on 5.5 gr of Trailboss. 5.0 did not give us a good chamber seal. YMMV.

As I stated, this load is meant for revolvers. We have run them through the magazines of Rossi 1892 clones with mixed results.

Our standard rifle load uses 240 gr RNFP bullets, so the difference is readily apparent.

I have found that, with muzzle loading shot guns, old news paper works well.
You may want to play around with the size of the paper you will need to get a good snug fit in the bore.
I have used face tissue from the pocket size packet when in the field, folded over several times to get a good fit.
Hope this suggestion helps.
My best,
