The Longbranch / Re: Something a little different or Gun-a-holic Part II
« Last post by Russ T Chambers on August 10, 2022, 12:17:56 PM »
I remember having a revolver, probably Mattel, that had potmetal bullets with brass ‘cases’ that slipped on them. A Greeny Stickum Cap went on the bullet and under the brass. Load them in your revolver and shoot some bandits. When you reloaded you would scrape the cap remains off the bullet on the curb. Repeat as necessary. My first adventure in reloading.

I had one of those!  If I remember right it was bright silver, with a gold cyclinder and ivory grips.  I was big and heavy and would've made a great club if I ran out of caps, and I could muster the strength to swing it.

Like many of you I had cap guns that used the caps that came in a roll. You would shoot several times and tear off that part of the roll that had the expended caps and continue shooting.

My only BB gun was a hand-me-down Daisy that had no front sight. I could see the BB when it was shot so I learned to judge the distance to my target by watching the arch of the BB. The same principal used when shooting a basketball. I became very proficient with that BB gun and could shoot it as well as my friends could theirs with sights.

As far as war games was concerned I did not have any of the weapons other than an old WWII bayonet, but I did have a steel US infantryman helmet that made your neck sore if you wore it for very long, a belt that held a canteen, a canteen, and a backpack.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but SASS allows steam punk guns, gear and costumes. I'd think that this should be wildly popular!

Seriously, we're supposed to be worried about ballistic coefficient in standard pressure .45Colt? It's just silly.

Pics?
I'll try to snap some this afternoon. I think they're too brown but it's a good indication of what spirit-based leather dye will do. Probably should've used London Tan but the walnut was easier.

I soaked mine in walnut dye overnight and they did seem to take it. It's not very deep but it's there.

Pics?

 :) Actually LMAO  ;)

PLUS ONE for Craig C. 

Those Lipstick tipped bullets are just plain STUPID.  Wouldn't mind the Barrel Shroud had it been cut to actually fit the Barrel Length.

Play Safe Out There

The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: No Trail Boss what's close?

Code: [Select]
I need to try some of this in some newer guns, before loading for antiques, but I was given 4# + 1# of SR4759, which is a bulky powder ( not as bulky as TB) for lighter loads. If nothing else I can use it in my mixers cartridges, in place of Trail Boss, and save the TB for fragile guns. Can’t complain about 5 extra pounds of powder.
