Buffalo Rifle
« on: July 09, 2019, 08:24:10 am »
Has anyone tried the newish Shooter's World Buffalo Rifle powder in their 76? any in anything? Sposed to be a reduced load type powder near equivalent of 5744. I'm going to try a few rounds shortly. I emailed the website about loads for the 45-75 but just got referred to the online chart I had already read with no load data for the 45-74. So I'll try a low end 5744 load to start with. The stuff meters well, I like that.

King Medallion haven't heard of the product till I read your post.  Let us know how it turns out.

 My 76 is in the shop.  After the abortive test with the brass from last company I managed to bugger the screw for the cartridge spring.  Ordered a new one but took it to my gunsmith as I didn't think I could get it loose.  Hopefully back soon.  Strange how ya miss the thing when it ain't here!!

Keep us posted, this new powder looks interesting.
