The fun of reloading.
I'm loading skirmish loads for .30-06 right now.

Sometimes plans change. I was looking for something else in my reloading shed junk shed, and came across a box of .310, 165gr flat point bullets purchased eons ago. Which is a good thing, because the .38-55 bullets I have are .380 diameter, cases are Winchester, and just like the interwebs warned me might happen, that combination won't chamber in my rifle. Needs a smaller bullet, or thinner case(Starline), or it might work with resized 30-30 cases. Fortunately, I only loaded one round to check the fit.

Sounds like a good plan.

STORM / Re: Reprocussion: Walker (video back up)

Interesting video on the Walker. Alot of facts ref the development and distribution that I've never read or heard before. Interesting info in regards as to where all of the individual parts were made and supplied by, also all of the hoops and barrels Colt and Walker had to go through with various gov't officials and red tape to get the first 1000 or more produced and in the hands of troops. I had to listen to it in two segments due to the length. Enjoyed the history and development more than the last of the video where the two people were giving their take on it, but that was ok. Having a Walker and shot it for some time, it was sorta like 'Ya, been there done that with a Walker', but to someone not familiar it would be informative. They do put out good, informative video's, have viewed a number of others they've produced.
The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: All Brass Shotshell Question

Today we burned some Black Powder. I shot my mid 1880's 12 Gauge J.P. Clabrough (English) hammer side by side. You can see the shot column leading the way. It was an enjoyable time in the Pawnee Grasslands.

Howdy Longwalker.
I have a two volume set by Douglas C. McChristian called Uniforms, Arms, and Equipment - The U.S. Army on the Western Frontier, 1880-1892.   Though I haven't delved into them much at all, they seem pretty informative.  I wondered if the same guy did the same thing for the earlier era, and see he has a book called The U.S. Army in the West, 1870–1880: Uniforms, Weapons, and Equipment Illustrated Edition.  I don't know anything else about it.  Maybe you've seen it?

   Enjoyed the video and looking forward to seeing it in action.  A friend used to tip over steel buffalo silhouettes with his.  he enjoyed his a lot.  Thanks for posting.

I recently got an Eras Gone mold for the Smith carbine bullet. So I loaded some up in the .56-50s to try in the split breech. The do look nice  ;D
