The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: American Pioneer powder

APP's kissing and now deceased cousin, Black M-Z, is the only thing that will work in my 45 S&W (incorrectly labled 45 Schofield by Star-Line) rounds when fired through the S&W Model 2000 Schofield.  If I don't sell it first I will have to find a source of APP when the last of the Black M-Z is gone.

Oh, and in my experience Big-Lube bullets still work better than cast bullets with the hard blue lube, at least in the finicky 2000 Schofield.

Here's two of Chuck Burrows' pieces I've added to the collection this year. The first is the most recent to benefit John Cohea's health struggles. Chuck's beadwork and John's knives are among my most prized possessions.





This one I found on Ebay and instantly knew it was Chuck's work. Far as I can tell, he never made the same thing twice and most of his beadwork was pictured on the website. This is the first one I've encountered that wasn't. I believe it to be a smaller, slightly less ornate version of the one below it.





I'm happy to say that I own both.





Also got this one about 2yrs ago.



And this one from KT.

That is one of the nice advantages about APP.

Buy your bullets where available, or cast, whatever you can. They all shoot fine.

I  usually use boughten hard lube bullets with APP, and SPG with real black.
Both work fine with APP,

:)  Gentelmen (Using the term loosely)   ;)

Allow me to impose.  As a long term user of APP, I have NEWS.  Well, information, not necessarily new.

Yes, APP is a SUB.  The flame and "authentic smell" are not necessarily all they are cracked up to be (that should start a fight).  APP may be used with ANY bullet, coated bullets, lubed bullets, BP Lubed bullets, BARE bullets.  No matter.  APP makes it's own "lube" and APP residue is NOT cumulative.  Each round fired takes the residue from the previous round with it.  Makes it super easy to clean up.

As a case in point, I don't have any "bare" bullets.  I just order bullets from whomever has the bullet I want in stock ready to ship.  Any lube is just fine.  Most of my current stock are of the "Crayon" lube variety for smokeless (gag) but APP doesn't care.  They shoot just fine.

Considering the ease of cleanup, no requirement for lube (ANY LUBE) I probably won't be bothered to return to BP.  Just Sooooooo much easier.  And yes ... I am Lazy.  Old Guys get to be lazy.

PS:  Almost forgot to mention;  the foregoing is also applicable to Cap Guns  ;D

Thank you immensely for that information. Now I know what I will be doing next in the reloading room. Although I probably should not do any actual test firing until after the neighbor moves his cows out.

Sounds like I may need to cast some more bullets and NOT lube them.

I've got a knife and beaded sheath from Chuck that I already featured - also have my cuffs, spur leathers, Strike-A-Light Pouch and Striker and another knife and sheath - this one laced. - he did fine work.

Scouts Out!
