Trailboss is a smokeless powder, designed to be "fluffly" so as to be difficult to accidentally dump a double charge
in large cases. It is known to have a "faster" pressure curve than smokeless, so if one is using it in original
guns, I would advise against it.

If you are shooting it in modern conversions, if one wanted to consider the differences, by working the math we see
that one might reduce the starting charge by .093 grains... or less than 1/10 grains. Sooooo ....
not that much of a difference. But free advice is worth every penny. Just watch for pressure signs.

good luck and keep us posted

Again, did not know about the Dance being 8" long.  Sorry.  Well have fun with your search and subsequent work.  Hope it turns out for you.

You may want to take a second look at that Colt.  I do not see an ejector rod housing guide on the frame.  Unless you are already aware of it but this looks like an Original Storekeeper Model.  I guess it could have been professionally filed or cut off but...l.  Now that is not saying that the original <4" barrel was not cut but... I would be very careful about what you do to it.

When C&B cylinder is in the gun how do the caps stay on when passing the notch in the frame for the cartridge loading?

I have not tried this pair yet with cap and ball because I have another pair that I normally shoot the cap and ball in but I am assuming that with properly fitting caps they should stay on. Its not like the metal that would have been there is actually holding the caps in place.
