Explain to me how annealing the brass helps? Does it somewhat soften the brass, making it easier to conform to the  chamber for less blow-back?

I found a pound of reloader 7 and I have Hornady xtp 200 grain bullets . I plan on using these as John talked about . There is published data from Alliant , will use that data .

There is only one published load for the 44-40 using Reloder 7. This load has been published by Lee, Alliant and Hercules. This load is only for a 240gr lead bullet.

John wrote up some pretty good posts about Reloder 7

I bought this Linder Kentucky Bowie on ebxx website several years back. The only problem is it is stainless. Wish it was high carbon steel instead.

yeah what they all said
45 colt brass is kinda tough at the front end - son has a replica spencer - we annealed the brass for it - some fellers make it complicated but its a quick easy process
stand em half submerged in a tray of cold water, apply propane torch flame one at the time and when you see a green colour come in the torch flame tip him over in the water and go to the next one -------rinse and repeat ! dont take long at all to do a hundred cases.

Im about to start reloading with the Lee loader for 30-30, just got the kit delivered. Seems like a good tool kit. Unfortunately I happened to notice there is a small crack on the inside of the die. So now I feel a bit uncomfortable about this situation. Perhaps its better to not use these tools when there are cracks visible in the die? Should I go ahead and start making reloads with this kit? Would it be safe?

This is a long thin bowie my wife won at the Salisbury NC match the year before it became the Uprising at Swearing Creek SASS NC State shoot. Believe it was done by a local knifemaker but I didn’t like the mediocre sheath and so I bought a nicer commercially made sheath from one of the big vendors at the NE Regional in Md at some point. It’s very nice but I have no idea who made it.

I was the same.... I wanted one without being made with the Stainless so many are made with today.

The roach belly design is even earlier that the Bowie and is very handy camp knife.
Though not quite to heft of a larger Bowie for chopping

Thank you all. Coffin, the Holy Black comment was meant for fun, as I only load it for a 45-70. They do have the removable bushings, thanks for pointing that out. So if I ever get extremely masochistic, I will give BP a try.
