The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: No Trail Boss what's close?
« Last post by Professor Marvel on Yesterday at 03:50:39 AM »
Once again, I would like to reference this thread from "leverguns"

https://levergunscommunity.org/viewtopic.php?t=27410

it shows actual pressure data for BP, Trailboss, and SR4759

please read the whole thing.

they make a valid point based on real data that TrailBoss
is a fluffy smokeless and IS NOT a BP sub or for older guns.


SR4759 has an almost identical pressure curve as Black Powder, and apears to perform somewhere between FFFg and FFg

as always, YMMV

Some call us conversion aficionados "Conversionistas" on the eastern banks of the Big Pond.
My regular match combo is a pair of custom RM converted Colt 1861 Navy replicas, .38 Long Colt cal. when I am competing in the Cattle Baron cat.
In Classic Cowboy I either use a pair of Centaure Long Cylinder Conversions (LCCs) with 4" barrel or a pair with 5,5" barrels, caliber is .44 Colt.

APP definitely leaves less fouling in the bore than BP.  I have used some 777 in .38's for rifle some years back because it was easy to find locally.  777 in a .38 seemed to recoil about the same as FFFg BP in a .357 in that rifle.  APP is the most popular sub for good reason.  But hardly any stores carry it so usually you will have to mail order, then you get into hazmat, etc.  Natchez is carrying Shooter's World Multi-Black (made by APP for Shooter's World).  I finally ran out of the can of APP that I opened in 2013  :) so I added a few cans of Multi-Black to my Natchez order when I was ordering primers and other powder. :)

I always make those borders using a hand CS Osborne embossing wheel. It's very close to the shape and size on some original FA Meanea and Al Furstnow pieces in my collection. I don't know if they still make those or not.

Do you have any idea of the model numbers?

Thanks for all the info. This forum is truly a treasure.

APP really isn't bad in the grunge department. Triple 7 leaves a hard crusty stuff that is sort of hard to clean. I've only used the later in modern inline muzzle loaders. I shot quite a bit of APP a few years back because I got some essentially free and found I liked it far better than other subs. I remember feeling like I thought the APP was not as powerful as Pyrodex or real BP. That said I did not crony any loads, my assumption was merely based on recoil of the guns and the report on steel targets. Plenty fine for CAS.

Howdy Loaders,

I recently started reloading shotshells. I had never considered it in the past as I didn't think the savings warranted the effort. The recent prices and unavailability got me started and I'm pleased with the results and I like controlling my availability. However...

Has anyone done a cost work-up comparing reload cost to current factory prices?

I know that components have also gone up and have been hard to get, but I have been fortunate enough to get enough for a couple of seasons. Plus, some of my shooting buddies cowboyed up with a healthy supply of hulls. I'm just curious and am to lazy to do the math myself.

Howdy converters,

I have an 1872 Open top. I know that it isn't technically a conversion. I love it and in my defense, I also have an ancient 1851 conversion in .38 S&W, a New Model Army in .45 Colt as well as a 3rd model Dragoon conversion (very heavy) in .45 Colt.

5 '51 Richards-Masons (two 4 3/4", two 5 1/2" engraved, one 7 1/2").  Two 5 1/2" Type II's, a '61 and '60.  One 7 1/2" '61 with Kirst and ejector.  All .38's except the .44 Spcl '60.  I shoot conversions about 90% of the time.
