I'm not an active cowboy action shooter as I don't have all the equipment but, I _do_ love shooting SAA's. I'm waiting for Midway's Camo Tuesday next week to pull the trigger on my purchase of reloading equipment to begin loading for 1974 my Blackhawk 6.5" and my Taylor Tuned Uberti Smoke Wagon. I also put on layaway a Leupold FX-II 2x20 handgun scope for the Blackhawk. I'd like to shoot targets at 50 yards and 100 yards. I've already bought 2 bottles of Trail Boss as I plan on shooting light .357 loads due to my aging wrists with carpel tunnel. I've been reading lots of posts on this and many other sites looking for answers and I'm just more confused. I hope I can get some more definitive answers here. Diverse questions are below: I'd like to use hard cast bullets and like what I read on the Oregon Trail website. I'd like to try various bullet weights (148, 158, 180) to see what will work best and is most accurate. But I can't see buying a minimum order of 500 if the bullet isn't performing. Is there any company that sells samples (on the order of 50 or so) of their various bullets before placing a larger order? Because I plan to use cast bullets I'm going to order the RCBS "cowboy dies". Can I use these dies for plated bullets, too? Is it reasonable to expect that Trail Boss will deliver accuracy to 50-100 yards or should I plan on using a different powder/bullet combination? This is a good start for my questions. I'm sure I have more. Thanks for any advice!
