The Leather Shop / Re: Main & Winchester cantena

I still own those originals Skeeter and the Main & Winchester saddle they are pictured on.  I traded for them more then 30 years ago.  A spur collector friend of mine had just bought them off a ranch south of Salmon, Idaho.  They were hanging is his tack shed.  I traded a pair of hand carved R.T. Frazier spur straps for these bags.  Your reproduction is very close.

That is amazing in itself. Love knowing these old rigs are in good hands.

Yes!! Conversions!!  My first one was a "setup " by my favorite gun shop.  I had money down on an ASM Navy. I called and told um I'd be by and pick it up and when I got there, they had this cool thing called a conversion kit  .  .  . "Public Defender" I think is what it was called.  They said they "figured " I'd be interested in it  .  .  .  ( reminds me of P.T. Barnum .  .  . one born every min.!!)!! COURSE I WAS!  So, I left with the Navy and the kit!!  ( turns out P.T. was right!!)  This was about 1988 give er take. Anyway,  after hundreds and hundreds of shots fired and not being able to  figure a way to make "fatter" bullets, I gave up on it and put the cap cyl back in it .  .  .  it was a Tack Driver!!! Haven't had another ".38" since!!!! ( THERE Mr. Barnum!!! Lol)
 Fast forward to 2011 /12  I "rediscovered " conversions  . . . in 45C for .44's  (this I understood!!!)!!!  So, my  brand new Whitneyville and 1st Model Dragoons became 45 Dragoons with Kirst gated conversions, followed by an Army(P), then a Remington(P) with a Howell 6 shot drop cyl, then a another  Army (P), an another Rem(P) with gated 5 shot cyl.( Equalizer from Kirst) an then a pair of Cimarron sourced Army's (U) one in .45C and the other in .45acp!!   They're all a HOOT !!!

I'm just kinda sorta Piling On here.  Ya know, "Plays Well with Others" sort of thing.  I shoot a lot of APP.  Seriously a LOT of APP.  Easiest clean-up of any of the Propellants.  There are several other good points though.  APP requires no Lube.  At'z right.  No Lubes.  None. Nada. Zero. Zilch.  You can shoot Nudie Bullets all day.  If you happen to find you have a goodly pile of Smokeless Lubed bullets, just go shoot 'em.  APP don't care if there is Crayon Lube.  Great stuff.

People are Still Contagious.  Avoid 'em

And your very first post "here" is a snide downer??  Obviously a wondrous way to gain friends and influence people.

Why Post Here if It's Just a Downer??

Thanks for the info.
Once again, I would like to reference this thread from "leverguns"

it shows actual pressure data for BP, Trailboss, and SR4759

please read the whole thing.

they make a valid point based on real data that TrailBoss
is a fluffy smokeless and IS NOT a BP sub or for older guns.

SR4759 has an almost identical pressure curve as Black Powder, and apears to perform somewhere between FFFg and FFg

as always, YMMV

Some call us conversion aficionados "Conversionistas" on the eastern banks of the Big Pond.
My regular match combo is a pair of custom RM converted Colt 1861 Navy replicas, .38 Long Colt cal. when I am competing in the Cattle Baron cat.
In Classic Cowboy I either use a pair of Centaure Long Cylinder Conversions (LCCs) with 4" barrel or a pair with 5,5" barrels, caliber is .44 Colt.
