I have had the card wad distort readings when testing black powder loads. Unburned grains of powder can also affect the readings. I use an old Chrony.

Books & Movies / Re: Horizon

I was really anxious to see it. I loved Dances with Wolves and Open Range. It was $24.99 to buy and $25 for two theater tickets. I preferred to watch it at home so I bought it on Amazon Prime. We watched it last night. I was disappointed. I found it had to follow. It jumped around a lot and some of the scenes made no sense to me.

Please don't go by my word. I'm by no means a movie critic. Just my humble opinion.

Try checking reloading forums, online marketplaces like eBay, local gun shops, or contacting Lyman directly for the primer tube holders you need.

The Darksider's Den / Re: 45-70 velocities with FFFg and 405 grain bullets

That calculator is really great.

Running through the calculator with Swiss FFFg and (not measured but looked up) case capacities of 77.5 grains of water it figured on about 1150 fps at 17,000 psi.

I'm just not seeing any way I could have hit 1700 fps with FFFg in a .45-70. Going by that calculator, even if I'd managed to put 85 grains by weight FFFg I shouldn't be breaking 1400 fps with the 24 inch barrel. Even 85 grains of FFFFg wouldn't break 1500 fps. I'm nearly convinced I just had an issue with the chronograph and black powder smoke.

Manchester, could this holster be stretched enough to fit an old model vaquero? I have a birdshead.

I was a paced 10 feet from the muzzle. I thought about pushing back further but just never did for whatever reason.

Those numbers do seem a bit off, try this calculator for comparison.

How close was your start gate to the muzzle?
