Make sure you've got a good forcing cone, and try the CS case with a well lubed bullet.  It might work fine!

 :)  Actually   ;)

Wabac (thank the Perfesser and Sherman), Lengthening the Schofield Cylinder to be chambered in 45 Colt was a VERY good idea.  All one ever heard or read or saw was some tyro whining and complaining they really really wanted a Schofield, but it wasn't available in 45 Colt.  Uberti obliged.  Smart Business.

Also correct, the Replicant Schofields were never intended for BP.  After all, why would modern shooters want BP!!  Perish the thought.  S&W thought the same when they brought the Schofield back under their own Moniker, also with the long cylinder.  My question has ALWAYS been, "Why would you want 45 Colt??"  The gun is just fine with 45 Schofield cartridges and even better with 44 Russian cartridges.

Would that someone somewhere would be willing to cut back either Uberti or S&W Cylinders and include to old BP Bushing.  Or, Better yet, manufacture an "accessory" Cylinder with said Bushing.  There is an outfit that makes accessory cylinders for Ruger Old Army.  Might be something right up their alley.

But if you came out with a shorter cylinder, how would you lengthen the barrel?

Good point. As for why would they think anyone would shoot black powder in a Schofield. They might have given a thought to the hundreds of thousands of "black powder" revolvers they and their fellow Italian gun makers have sold in the United States. We stupid Americans seem to like shooting the old propellent, unlike all those enlightened Italians.
