The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: Reloading Setup
« Last post by 6MT on Yesterday at 08:39:41 PM »
The Lee turret works just fine. I manually index mine since the silly plastic bits gave up the ghost after only a couple of rounds. (A weak spot about this press.)




And I prime on this press….



And charging might be a bit of overkill to some.



Yes, my processes take time. And the precision I obtain probably is too much for the levers and revolvers in my stable. But I really enjoy reloading. As much as shooting.

NCOWS / Re: 44 wcf smokeless loads

I am waiting for warmer weather so I can enjoy shooting . I want to have a smokeless load to add to my 44 wcf loads in the past I have used Unique and it worked but I was wanting a powder that  filled the case and was low pressure .

The only smokeless powder that fills the case and has the lowest pressure is Reloder 7. However, those pressures push the normal limits. I think H4198 comes in second, also pushing normal pressure limits. All depending actually bullets used and the seating depth of those bullets.

Here are the Reloder 7 tests I made. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cZyKKXVyHq9as9uFJiko5yReJ9a-ER32YsENTgJGJs4/edit#gid=819756635
Noted in the notes section shows if it is a case capacity load, meaning the bullet sits on top of the powder but not necessarily firmly.

Here are the few H4198 loads I tested of which none are noted as a case capacity loads. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cZyKKXVyHq9as9uFJiko5yReJ9a-ER32YsENTgJGJs4/edit#gid=1350502736

There could be more out there somewhere but I just never tested everything I wanted to test and some powders I wanted to test have been discontinued.. Since Reloder 7 gives me both normal 1,350fps velocities at normal pressures as well as a tad hot loads at 1,400fps to 1,500fps for stronger action rifles with decent results, I decided to stay with it, especially since it is the most accurate loads for my firearms.

IMR-4227 gives me decent results as a High Velocity load powder so that is my second choice.

Unique is my second choice for normal loads and third choice as an over-all powder for the 44-40.

« Last post by DeaconKC on Yesterday at 03:38:49 PM »
FS: 1915 DWM Luger, has Imperial German Army markings and Altamont grips [also have some checkered walnut grips] This appears to be a "capture" gun as all marking match except the trigger plate. One original mag and a MecGar mag. Good shooter, likes Winchester White Box 115 or 124 grain FMJ. $2000 OBO, we will figure up shipping based on where you are.
