Useful links and blogs for the 1876
« on: January 12, 2008, 10:15:30 am »
I am making this a sticky, and will add to it as I locate links that will be useful for shooters of the 1876.  As additional resources are identified, we will add them to this thread.

Shooting With Hobie - Read all about Hobies adventures with the Chaparral NWMP SRC in 45-75.  Good information regarding forming brass for this caliber.  A very informative blog!   http://shootingwithhobie.blogspot.com/2007/04/winchester-1876-src-nwmp-reproduction.html

The caution(s) mentioned in the reloading manuals of starting 10% below any recommended load(s) and working your way up apply in spades!

Grizzly - great post.  The Battle Of The Big Dry Wash article brings back 'memories' for me.  When I was communicating 'heavily' with the boyzs in Italy about the incorrect breech pin - it was the parts diagram on Kirk's site that I referenced.  Still have it in my reference directory

Hi Griz,

Here's Hobie's blog;

Thanks for the updated link, Sir Charles.  I have made the change above. :) COG's page is down, so I remove  the dead end link.
