General Discussion / Re: Your favorite way to load your BP Revolver
« Last post by Captainkirk on Today at 09:52:19 AM »
Since I attend a lot of Cowboy matches and if I decide to use percussion pistols on that day, paper cartridges are much easier for me. Took me a lot of experimenting to come up two procedures I like--one as just a powder "sack" with no projectile attached and the other with a heel bullet. After a bunch of time working with those papers, to my surprise I actually started to enjoy it. Trick for me is not to try making too many at once. I work for about an hour and stop. Eventually they start to pile up.

The "powder sack" sounds intriguing. Tell me more...

Other Stainless Guns / Re: SS ROA

Yeah, they have always been pricey. I haven't shot this one yet as I have another ROA that is an old warhorse; no finish on the frame, but the barrel is a very nice blue. They are Hell-for-stout guns!

They didn't start to be pricey until Ruger stopped production, IIRC

My newest gun (as yet unfired) is a stainless Rossi 92 in 38/357.

Sweet! Even though they aren't HC, I always admired the ROA.
