Thanks Marshal, but I don't have anything (except 1911's) that really fits JUST that period.  I am curious about the pattern, because I really think it is a complicated design.

It is a bit more complex than other designs but it's amazingly well though out. There are a variety of pistols that they were made for. Colt SAA, 1911 and Colt & Smith DAs to mention a few. I like the look of the 1911 ones but they are definitely a great design.

Will's El Dorado holster isn't a Brill design. I didn't see a Brill on his site. You could email him to see if he has the pattern available.

The Winchester Model 1876 / RCBS .45-75 die set on eBay
« Last post by Boone May on November 30, 2022, 11:02:05 AM »
These RCBS .45-75 dies are not mine, I have no dog in the fight.  Just listing in case anyone is interested.  I have this same set and they work pretty well.  I had to change the bullet seater to a flat nose type.  For some reason they gave me a round nose seater.  Not great for a lever action rifle.

The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Loading Data for the 45-60 WCF
« Last post by Black River Smith on November 30, 2022, 10:28:06 AM »
The brass is once fired resized and primed 45/70 Starline. I had resized in my Lyman 45/70 die. Chopped it, chamfered in and out, then used the new rcbs belling die.

King, the only comment I would make is -- you have made 45-75 and 50-95 from other forms of different caliber brass.  I am certain you had to size them in the proper caliber sizing die to get the correct final shaping (or fireformed them??).  The same is true with 45-70 to 45-60 or 40-60.  After cutting, I chamfer, then size, then trim to final length, then chamfer again, then size again.  You really need to size them in the 45-60 sizer.  Then bell.  This will give you the correct shape the seater/crimp die is expecting.

Try one piece doing 'something like above' and see if you get a different result.  If not, then you may be correct about the tight seater.

In my opinion 'No' die should scrape our brass casings, like you showed above, unless they were previously damaged or mis-manufactured.  If I see any scraping on my brass, I am not happy.  I immediately think of polishing out those dies.  I have bought several RCBS used sets and have had to polish the sizer die because people have mis-used them.

If the same thing happens again call RCBS about a replacement.  Just not right.

PS: Your bullet weights are in the range.  Your diameter will depend on your seater and whether they fit in rifle chamber and your rifle bore.

Books & Movies / The Strategy of Defeat at the Little Big Horn
« Last post by Shawnee McGrutt on November 30, 2022, 10:01:39 AM »
Saw on a Facebook group that Frederic C. Wagner III,  author of The Strategy of Defeat at the Little Big Horn, passed away on Sunday November 27, 2022.
I have found his books on the Battle of the Little Big Horn, quite informative and well researched.  His analysis of the battle does not criticize or hero worship Custer. 
If you have an interest in the Indian Wars of the Northern Plains, his books are well worth taking a look at.

I have an assortment of bullets to try, some are .458, others are .459. Some  are 300 gr, some are 350 gr, might even try some 400 gr. I have a wide selection of powders too.

Good morning folks. 29 here right now, supposed to get to 49 today, it's sunny out, so it looks real pretty. Been short-handed at the gun store, flu is going around. Thankfully I haven't gotten it. Learned  how to mount a rifle scope yesterday, had never done that before. Hope you all have a great day, even you guys getting 80 degrees of sunshine!
