28 and a light skiff, wife was complaining about having to clean windshield I suggested making sure the passenger who needs to go to school or work be woken up early enough to do it.  That's what I do when I drive the limo. ;D

Two more doses if antibiotic, one at noon, one at midnight and tomorrow pump and picc line go away, just short of 4 months, we expect culture test to come up clear again.

We are doing a wait on doing surgery, ben 10 days since a flare, surgeon knows what is going on and since I'm not really in any immediate danger they'll just call him if flairs.   
The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Loading Data for the 45-60 WCF

To answer your question directly - No.  The RCBS dies I have do not scrape the brass during initial sizing or seating.  My Lee set did scrape when sizing that is why I went to the RCBS.

1. Did you size the brass after cutting it to length?  I do not see the shoulder that the RCBS dies put in the brass.  This is not a straight case cartridge. Original Winchester brass is a slight bottle neck.  The originals used a 0.456" bullet (don't know what Uberti bores measure).  I have an original Winchester 45-60 bullet mold that drops a perfect bullet.  My Chapparal likes the 0.456 bullet but the chamber is cut a little full.  Brass comes out straight.

2. Did you expand that brass with the RCBS 45-60 expander in the set or something different?

3. What size bullet are you planning to use in this Uberti rifle?  I know some people have used larger sized bullets.

Sorry, this is all I can think of, for what may have caused the scraping.

I wouldn't think it would hurt anything, unless it is shaving the bullet or crumpling the brass.

In August I bought a brand new in the greasy bag Uberti (Taylor) 1851 Navy that must have been put together by an annoyed employee.
There was no date code on it only a number22 in a circle stamped on the frame.
It took a brass TOW wedge driver and a fairly  big hammer to remove the wedge after taking out the retention screw.
Using the loading lever and a bit of Swedish steam the barrel came off. It would not go back on..
Three of the nipples were tight past my good nipple wrench.
Quality control department there must be run by a poorly trained rat.
It looks great and Hoof Hearted sorted out the problems and installed a Krist Konversion to shoot either .38 Short Colt or as a cap and ball.
Shoots fine both ways but that was rediculious.
Yr' Obt' Svt'
P.S. A certain retired gun plumber warned me to steer clear of Uberti.
 Did I listen?
Should I have paid attention
You bet your boots

I got an 1860 sherrif (but it's pietta) from them last year in about that condition. Ended up having to buy a new frame and backstrap as the screws are apparently cross threaded.
It sure does look good. Way better than others I got in the late 90s and 2000s, this one actually looks and feels like a firearm, unfortunately all of the major parts fit poorly and were seemingly forced together.
If I ever hear back from the Goon I'd like to have him do the deluxe treatment on it
The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: SR 4759 ??

Howdy Slam,

I believe that 4759 is no longer made. I used it (and it seemed to work well) in 45/70 and other rifle cartridges. I never used it in handgun loads.

Buffalo arms has the 56-50 cartridges in stock for the Armi Sport guns. These will work in an original with slight modification to the rim. I made a tool to bump the rim size up.
  You will need to drill a hole in a block of iron slightly larger than the case diameter then cut a refinished rim sized grove in the top with a slightly raised edge in the inner edge. You can then place a cartridge in the hole and crush it in a vice or hit it with a hammer to bump the rim to proper size.

There was some late WW2 P37 webbing that used the blackened fittings....allegedly.  I have an absurd collection of Canadian/UK p37 gear and so far I have not found a 44/45 dated piece that has blackened fittings.

FYI for a DD display it would be brass press studs on the pouches not the QD ones.

Major2, I still have that uniform I need to send you for the museum.

Thank you Smoke

The model just has some genaric internet photos size and pasted too coroplast for the visual.
We will dress the real mannequins; with authentic battle dress we are trying to acquire.

Rattlesnake Jacks help has been very helpful.

Morning all.

It’s a balmy -1 in Missoula today, with a new inch of fresh white stuff.

Todays plans are to put the nose to the grindstone at work and try to not freeze.

Regarding birthday cakes,  for my dad’s 50th we tried to put 50 candles on his cake. It set off the smoke alarms in the house, and gave the cake a colorful wax coating.
