Hallooo the fire!
  Griz, please sign me up for the forum.
  We chatted about a year ago when I was having accuracy problems with my new toy due to my screwing up a batch of what was supposed to be 20/1 lead that tested out at 35-1.  Apparently, bullet slump was the problem due to a sloppy chamber throat.  20/1 did improve the groups.
  I've moulded me up some 16/1 for the Chap 1876 in 45-75 in 350 grain in the Lyman and the RCBS moulds but haven't had time to play with them yet.

I would be honoured to join this merry band if I could.  I'm expecting my 76 shortly and would like to get a jump on things before it arrives.

Good looking rifle there Chuck.  Thanks for posting the pic, and give us a range report when you get her fired up and running! ;D

You can sign me up if it's not too much trouble. I picked up an original '76 about a year or so ago. It's been altered a fair bit, and I intend to get it in at least somewhat more original configuration when I can. Haven't loaded any rounds yet or fired it, but finally have all the equipment necessary to make the brass and bullets and load them together. It's a 45-60 BTW.

The bore's in good shape as is the internals. I've had it apart and cleaned it out and relubed it (built a '73 almost from scratch, making most of the parts myself), so it's ready for the range.

Hi

As the recent proud father of a new Uberti in 50/95 would you add me to the role of honour?  :)

Cheers

Just got my new Chaparral in .45-75 and looking forward to taking it out soon.  In the meantime I have to be content to sit and polish and rub and clean and dream...  I would like very much to be considered for a place in this august company.

Finaly managed to pick mine up from my dealer.  Got it used from Oklahoma Dee, a NWMP, very light and handy compared to the big long barreled ones.  Only put 15 rounds through it to test it out at 25 yards, functioned perfectly.  Now to load some ammo and try some longer ranges!  Should make one heck of a good deer rifle!

Finally took some pics of my 45-75 Cimarron. They did me pretty good nice wood and fit and it works great. I have a few hours into it polishing and working on the springs it levers very nice and has a 3# trigger. Add me to the list  ;D
