    Info/price on Ruger 38-40 w/.40 cylinders

    Think Gunbroker had one for 2200 a while back.

    .45 Colt BP "Show" Load

    I have not had much luck with glitter or colored smoke. The amount of white smoke tends to obscure what ever extra you add. Often thought that changing the nitrate metal might be a cool way to add color smoke but have not pursued that angle.

    Smokeless shot shells in brass 12 ga.EASY TO DO

    This nails it. Fix it by using a 10 g plastic shot cup and yes they do fit.

    .45 Colt BP "Show" Load

    Last time I looked, GOEX REENACTOR had some meadow muffin sized granules in it when we loaded some up for a buddy and Utah BP shoot. Just grins because of the smoke, fire and disappearing targets.

    45LC vs 44WCF for long range

    I do have an old Lyman reloading manual from the 60's that list 44/40 loads faster than the 44Mag. Really amazing since Lyman was always a little conservative on their loads. Do believe the 38/40 also came in a HiVel Rifle only offering.

    45LC vs 44WCF for long range

    Go with a 38/40 Hits harder and shoots flatter Really - no difference. Same with those that claim 44/40 is better than a 45LC with BP. Somebody forgot to tell my Puma 92 in 45 that one... Think it all boils down the skill level of the shooter

    Increasing length of pull

    spacer and lace on but cover. Some recoil pads might make an inch.

    Wondering if I should switch shotguns

    practice yes this is the key. But some SG seem to better fit into ones uinque body style and muscle structure. For me sxs just do not work. Why, who cares. But pumps are what I grew up with and felt better starting out. Suggest at the end of the shoot grab the other styles and see what one feels better in you hands

    Reloading 44-40 for the Miroku Winchester...

    Big Lube Bullets are the cure all for BP problems. Assumuing proper diameter.

    Reloading .38sp crushed cases

    are your cases the same brand or random collection? different overrall case lengths can cause problems

    Starting with black powder

    Please keep in mine that 777 was made for people that hunt with BP. It will give you 10 - 15% more velocity than real BP. I started to use it when first shooting BP cowboy events because I had it on hand. Without filler, 45 LC loads can get over 1000 fps out of my 4 5/8 inch RV and a 250 grain bullet. Cowboy shooting and 777 are not on the same page without jumping through a lot of hoops to make it managable. Switched to Pinnacle and was very pleased with the results. It is no longer in production and I bought a case of it way back when the news first came out. Now I just use 2F Goex and Big Lube bullets for everything. Although I have not used it, from what I have hear, APP would be your best bet if not wanting to go to real BP.

    Metamorphisis of Clint Eastwood

    oh, I feel your pain. 50 years ago I would put up 800 bales with a three man crew, today had to stop at 60 bales.

    Thoughts on Backup/Wild bunch Rifle Caliber

    There is a lot of conjecture on why they named a 40 caliber - /40. Best I have heard is so it did not sound like a 44/40, 40/40 That aside I think the 38/40 to be the best all around round going in cowboy shooting. It legal in all catagories when loaded with the right powder and for what ever reason recoil seems less than other rounds with similar weight bullets. shoots a .401 bullet the same as 40 S&W and with the orginal BP matches up in the balistic parameters of the S&W
