Frontier Iron / Re: Cimarron's new American model!

i can't locate my new 44 special brass right now but found 6 fired cases of different manufacture.  They fit the chambers fine.  Also, I checked the cylinder length and it's 1.556".

Thanks for verifying everything.  That is good to know.  But still seems silly for Uberti to change the barrel stamping unless something broke or the original long version was taking extra time.

Have fun shooting yours.

Great stuff!  Were the birds wild or planted.  Looks like a lot of fun.  Around here one really has to beat the brush to get that many chances on quail in a day.

    Took my "Range Box", for loading in the field and worked up 6 different loads using LEE dippers & a digital scale to verify my loads.
  Took a friend (fellow shooter) to do the shooting, i did the loading.

  40-60 chaparral w/ 26"- barrel, w/ vernier back sight, green dot front sight.
   Starline Brass 45-70 sized to 40-60 WCF.
   Brass OAL 1.885, w/ 403168 (Lyman) @ .214-.215gn. PC'd. OAL 2.260.
   Using Vihita Vuori N133.
   1st load 22.5gns= 1011 fps. ended up at 28.0gns for a 2 shot average of 1361 fps. "BUT" the thing that surprised both myself & my friend was they all shot to the same hole. We only shot 25yds to chro our loads. (3/4" c/c).

   My shooter shot his 45-70 RRB (one i had rebuilt) w/ N133 , and got the same results, 3 in one hole 2 on the edge of the 3 holes.
   To say we were impressed w/ our results would be a understatement, we both think we have found the powder for " our" rifles.
   YOUR millage may very, start low work up be safe.

The Longbranch / Re: gunoholic

Another piece that's dear to me is my Dads Remington Model 341 built prior to WW2.
It was produced between 1936 - 1940 when Remington went to war production.
This was the first gun I ever shot and owned; Dad gave to me when I was 10.
 It would chamber 22 short, Long and Long Rifle.

I recall my Dad contemplated shortening the stock's LOP so I could shoulder it, I used to hold it in my armpit to aim.
I must have about 8 or so. I'm glad he did not, he realized I'd would grow into it.
I was a deadeye and a threat to every tin can and bottle I collected.  :D

Great memories  :) and still shoots great.
