The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: 38 Long Colt Ballon head cases
« Last post by swampman on Today at 10:00:36 PM »
somewhere on the shelf is most of a cigar box full of balloon head .45 Colt cases. I can't do much with them because they do not have the extractor groove like new cases do. They are almost rimless and unless I want to dig out the Ideal tong tool they will stay in the box.
Things change
Yr' Obt' Svt'

 Would you entertain parting with those .45 cases?

Finally got a chance to fire the old gun today, was a little worried so I put it in a lead sled with and used a wire to pull the trigger, and it worked perfectly. Fired about 20 black powder rounds through it. I am going to take it upland game hunting this fall. I haven't fired a black powder fiream in a long time, was impressed with the amount of smoke that came out

Evening all.

Definitely smoky here. I got the call from Uncle Sam today that I’ll probably get activated to fight fires. Not quite as lucrative as my day job, but could be fun I suppose.

Of  course it's my opinion but a "single coil spring" (split washer) doesn't work well past SASS type loadings. If you're going to shoot regular or full power loads you need a solid spacer. I make mine from the head of a stainless steel #12 pan head  screw (Armys /Navys) and #14 for Walkers/Dragoons. The rounded head is "self centering" at the bottom of the arbor hole. Ultimately you end up with a solid spacer with full contact for harmonic transfer of force.  It allows you to shoot full loads ad nauseum.

I have a 4 clicker but I wasn’t going to post it as it’s more worn.
