I made one with rawhide for a stiffener but the rawhide layer shrank more when it dried than both the outer layer and liner. The whole thing is fine but you can tell that it's a little 'loose in its skin'. I probably blew the gluing. One of the other pards here may be able to shed a little light there so you end up with a better end product than I did.

I've always been told, regarding the old west replica guns (Colt clone, Schofield clone, etc.) "you can experiment but keep it on the low end."    (as opposed to say a Ruger Old or even New Vaquero)

Okay, so to impact lower you want the front sight higher.

I don't know the detailed history, but in WWI, artillery officers wore their revolver behind the right hip. I presume it was because they were either prone with their enormous binoculars in front of their eyes or peering down at a map or plotting table. I have one in my collection belonging to a C.E.F. officer serving in an artillery brigade.

For leather get in touch with Trailrider Products in Denver.  Trailrider is a GAF member and posts here fairly often and has a website.  You won't find better or more correct period military leather.

Any of the published loads for the .45 Colt in the Manufacturers Loading manuals are going to be safe.  I suggest that you invest in some Trail Boss Powder if you want mild loads without loading under SAMMI specs.  I used Unique for years in .45 Colt in all my SAA's an in my Schofield replicas.  As long as you do not try using loads for T/C Contender or Ruger's you should be fine.

I shot the first six stages of a 10 stage match in Victoria, So far not too bad, but not totally clean.  I use .357 mag cases to hold 20 grains of 3Fg with a .375 ball pressed on top. When its time to load, thumb the ball off, dump the powder into the chamber, home-made lubed wad pressed over the powder, place the ball & ram. Almost as fast as it took me to type this. Cap with a straight-line capper.

At first our posse kept to a rigid shooting order. We have evolved to a shoot when ready order, which is best for me.  I start to load as soon as I arrive at the stage area and complete the procedure so I get to shoot about fourth. After shooting, I get my posse duties done.

Back tomorrow to complete the match, and I will try to go clean.

Don't you move the front sight in the opposite direction in which you want the bullet to impact.

I don't want to beat up this gun and maybe I'm making a lot, or everything, to do about nothing, but my Speer reloading manuel starts you at 6.5 grains of Bullseye for a 200 gr Lead SWC bullet.   I accidentally loaded a few rounds to 5.5.  Checked a my Hornandy and they start out well below that (but with a different type of lead 200 gr bullet).   Shot a few of the 5.5 grain Bullseye powder carefully.  They all came out of the barrel okay and accurate.  They were tame, (as I want).  Loaded a few 6.5 grain Bullseye, I could definitely feel the difference in recoil.   

I know the gun is rated for .45 Long Colt so there should be no problems, I just want to be sure I'm not causing accelerated wear on the gun.  AND I like the feel of the 5.5 grains for simple practice but don't want to underload.
