The Barracks / Re: Cornfield Brutality. In Iowa.
« Last post by pony express on Today at 10:22:45 PM »
I like it! And... Iowa's a lot closer than the desert where he normally shoots. But what we really need is an "Ozarks Brutality" match.
I would think that the dacron fluff, over black powder, would be no different than air space over BP. Cream of wheat, corn meal, etc isn't compressible, I don't know if you can compress the dacron enough to get rid of the air space.
It's a five and a half inch barrel.  My personal least favorite, but that's me.

The Darksider's Den / Re: 30 / 30 like 6.5 Carcano? BP in Carcano

FWIW Dept: There is a misconception in the OP.  The .30-30 was never factory loaded with Black Powder.  The 30 refers to a 1st generation smokeless powder.  Like the .30-40 Krag, also never loaded with Black.  This style of nomenclature was soon abandoned for smokeless loadings, but lingers on in these two rounds. 

The Carcano round has an internal volume of 3.0cc, with the .30 WCF (30-30) having an internal volume of 2.45cc    As such using low pressure cast bullet starting loads for the .30-30 is probably a good place to start.  Unique and Red Dot would probably work well in this application. 
The Longbranch / Barrel length Eastwood snake gun: For a Few Dollars More?

1:50:30" into For A Few Dollars More, the man with no name (Eastwood) loads his Colt SAA revolver. Is this a 5-1/2" barrel model? Shorter? Longer?  ???

He used a different snake revolver, not a SAA, in the later movie The Good , The Bad, and The Ugly.

No it's pillow stuffing. Cream of wheat won't really work in a bottle neck cartridge.
My first ‘gun’ was a Model 25 Daisy pump BBgun. Got it for my birthday. Didn't have to shake it like those lever guns as it had a spring fed magazine/internal barrel that screwed in the outside barrel. Think it held 25 BBs. Had a plastic stock but I built a pistol grip for it.  I could shoot that critter. My first new .22 rifle was a Remington Fieldmaster pump. Like a pump.
