Howdy all, got up to 73 this afternoon and lots of sun after a day that poured rain. Worked all day at the store, Monday going to work out with the owner on an ATI Commander, gun is in great shape, I will bobtail it, done it before and got talked out of the gun by a cop buddy. Church tomorrow, then after the Afternoon service gonna go buy a couple of new ceiling fans for the back porch. The windows are in so they are going to put them in this week.
I have settled on a load of 7.5 grains of Unique under a 200 or 250 Grain RNFP cast bullet. My Opentops, Schofields and my 73 carbine all run well with it.

I limit by fouling by shooting full power loads, 7.5 grains of Unique under a 200 or 250 grain RNFP. And yup, I do have to clean em, but not as much as the guys with mouse fart loads.

New project...I acquired this little Philadelphia Deringer Kit today.
I remember seeing these in the early 80's ,this one is NOS circa 1984 and was never assembled.
 It was made in Italy. I plan to put it together.

I kinda mocked it together for these photos.

I decided not to build the little Derringer Kit (already have two wall hangers in loading cave anyway)
  I'll past it on....
I have posted it on Ebay less the anti's over there pull it because it breaks one of their forbidden draconian rules  ::)

Its just sorta mocked up for the photo, other parts and in the box.

Nice. Glad you got them figured out and they shoot good. Sometimes we just have a weird day at the range.

Nice job! The Duke himself would be proud to carry this Rig.

Thank you Johnny.
Miserable weather day here today, Started as rain, turned to sleet, then to S**w, then back to rain/sleet and finally rain, temps were low to mid 30's it was the kind of day that make your entire body ache. Tomorrow will be better, going to meet a bunch of friends to swap/sell CAS clothes, gear and then a potluck dinner.Y'all have a good night.

I have a M1886 Winchester in .45-70 that has "CGH" stamped on the buttstock. (Don't have access to the S/N right now. The rifle appears to have been reblued at sometime. I thought I had a magazine article on the subject, but can't find it now.  :(  The s/n does fall within the range of the ones according to the article.

So you know what that means, you gonna haffta melt your lead over an open fire now too!!!! ;D
Howdy RR and others,

I have a .38 OT (no help there). My other OT is .45 Colt; however it is a 3rd model dragoon converted by Hoofhearted. So, my 6grs. of American Select under a 200 gr bullet feels pretty mild. Given the size of the cylinder, I could probably go much hotter but I use the same load in all my 45's. So the forgoing was probably of little help.

Glad I could participate,

Rev. Chase
