    45 lead

    I ordered lead bullets from a member here about 2 months ago and can't remember who it was. Real soft 200gn lrn that doesn't lead up my converted cap guns. Has blue lube. It was like $35 for 500 shipped. Came in a flat rate box. That's all I can remember... Any ideas?

    45 Colt Round Ball Loading Data

    .454 round ball weighs about 141 grains, should make for a decent mouse fart load... My Remingtons that are still c&b have much less recoil with full power triple 7 loads and round balls than my converted 58s with 5.5gn of trail boss and 200gn bullets

    Blown Guns During SASS Matches?

    Here's the only pic I have of the Walker I blew up a few years back. Black powder, 285 conical. I may have loaded 4f by accident, I may have forgot to lube the bullet, it might have just been one of those things, I just don't know. I will tell you this, it scared the crap put of me!

    Blown Guns During SASS Matches?

    Boiler tech are you? When I still worked on boilers we called it "rapid disassemblance of parts, unassisted"... Or "coughing a firebox" when it didn't come apart... I once sent a flue cap from an old coal to oil converted brick set 3 blocks across Baltimore... Stupid city school stationary engineer tried to restart it more than two dozen times and filled it with oil, didn't bother to tell me of course. I replaced the flame eye, started it up, then KABOOM!!! Found the flue cap 3 blocks away in the middle of the street... I "popped" a chamber on my 47 Walker with a 285gn conical and a full chamber of black powder (not sure if I accidentally filled it with 4f or not). I took a buddy of mine to the range with the same Walker with a different cylinder and it chain fired on him. The first time he ever shot a cap and ball, first round, chain fire...lol... Scared the hell out of everyone and the only chain fire I've ever seen. Had a guy I worked with buy a first model Iver Johnson 32s&w from me, go out and buy 32acp hollow points and blow it up... Seen quite a few 73s jam up or break but never a kaboom at a match... Never seen a 92 jam either
