The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Loading Data for the 45-60 WCF

Thanks to each of you for continuing to add to this thread.  I'm deciding what mold to buy for my '76 Uberti carbine and would prefer one bullet that would work with both black powder and regular powders.  Any modern made suggestions in the 300ish grain weight, good metplat for hunting, carry sufficient lube for black and have a properly placed crimp groove?

That's a very neat professional job you did there. It compliments the Pistol nicely.

That's a 3rd Generation Colt which is less desirable to some but still a real Colt and most of them are quite handsome to behold. $1200 for a ninety-nine percent 3rd Gen Colt seems like a good price, particularly in this gun starved market.

Oh, and the stocks are indeed some form of plastic these days.

Sounds about right, I had some minor spotting about 1 hour or 2.....Novocain wore off a 4-5 hours later.
I took one pain pill that night and another the next morning , still have the remainder...
Follow up showed no infection , but stiches are loose...
Glad you are doing good   :)

Major 2
I made through step one of my new mouth.  Out of 20 extractions I had done that was leaking after I got home.  It of my upper right wisdom tooth (as inaccessible as it can get).  Called the Dr. and went back in, after some applications of a topical blood coagulant (or some think like that), everything is sealed up, and fine. :) :)  Next step, the follow up visit is the 24th, then it’s back to see the dentist for denture fitting.
So far, it’s been almost 24 hours since the procedure, so the original pain killed should have worn of long ago, but so far, no pain (knock on wood). :o :o Just taking antibacterial pills at this point.  We’ll see how long this lasts! ;) ;)
Took a while for the swelling to go down sufficiently, but I'm now on Ensure and cottage cheese.  Will work my way up from there after a few more days, when they say I can brush, and rinse  with a syringe they gave me.

Since we're being so focused on simple little mistakes, would you be interested in knowing, the 1871/72 Open Top DOES NOT have a "Cylinder Collar" nor "Ring."  Sheesh.

Oh, forgot, BR:  Once properly set up, the Open Top will run just fine with either BP or Smokeless.  The OP's gun is binding because of uneven Barrel to Cylinder gap.  If the Barrel to Cylinder gap is left uncorrected, it will bind with anything, any time the wedge pushed in too far.

And just so you can understand where I'm coming from, 20+ years a CAS Gunsmith and a heavy specialty with Open Top pattern guns gives me a pretty sound basis to work from.  NOT the single Sample Example in one's possession, one might consider to be representative of the model.

Or is it just to unthinkable to walk into your LGS and see something you just happen to like better??  Get over it sport.

Agree with Abilene and Coffinmaker,
 To me, the one attribute the open top platform has is that it is "self cleaning". With the cylinder kissing the barrel with each cycle, it clears off any build up. To keep any " build up" to a minimum, the use of a close barrel/cyl clearance (.0025" - .003") forces most of the fouling down the barrel .  .  .  where it's supposed to go. 
  As for the '71/'72 Open Top copies, I set them up the same way as "regular" open tops. I just treat the bushing /spacer on the cylinder as nothing but a gas ring (fouling management). That way, you still have the "self cleaning" aspect with a .002" - .0025" endshake/ no gap.

Taurus springs them heavy to make up for the lack of time spent hand fitting the action parts.polish up the wear surfaces and they will slick up nicely.
