    If that RCBS mould is the .44-370-FN 585 that is a good bullet for the 19 ROT. I used that mould for my Shiloh with the 19 ROT and it worked very good especially for what your plans are for this fine roller as long as the bore riding portion of the...

    All this foolishness stuffing filler in a case to reduce the recoil is looking for a grenade down the line. I have personally seen the results what can happen and one was standing next to me 20' away when the barrel flew in the air with pieces all...

    I had to order one of the new dies for my .44 DDPP to get the base down to .444" so it fits in the case mouth of my tight chamber .44-77. I use a RCBS Rockchucker and took the 1-1/4 bushing out and screwed their adapter in. It works just fine but I...

    "Using the scope, with a case chambered, the lead looks fairly long with a very gradual taper into the rifling itself. So, would that indicate a possible paper patch chamber? " That is a paper patch/lead bullet lead. The 45 degree came along...

    He would be in a world of hurt with the cap on the nipple if the hammer would drop closing the breach slapping it like that.

    With .030" more compression with the same powder load you won't feel the difference in the felt recoil. It's the way she controlled the rifle like Don said.

    If you can do a search for some .Bell .44 basic brass it has the proper base diameter of .518" the .44-77 brass is .516" at the base. The .44 Bell basic and I used several hundred of those cases for my .44-90 BN Sharps. Those rims run between .078"...

    My experience with Bertram brass was less then bad. I got some of their .40-70 cases that didn't last 5 shots. The yellow brass they use is harder than hard. I would check with Rocky Mountain Cartridge LLC if Buffalo Arms don't have it, they might...

    Just anneal the necks and put a slight roller crimp on the neck that will stretch the neck but don't over do the crimp.

    Jim, Shooting dirty has been my passion for going on 65 years since I got my first .43 Spanish. back then I used a lot of the Harry Pope Moulds that he made for Ideal moulds but they were grease grooved. Take a look at the bullets in the link...

    Jim, I has more to do with the ogive profile then the diameter to shoot repeatedly with fouled throats.

    I made the bullet as close as I could to the original with a cup base but I made a second base plug for a flat base. The the original cup based bullets the Sharps Rifle Co. used was to tug the twisted patch tail into to make the bullet base more or...

    Nothing wrong with a meplat for a hunting bullet but I wouldn't go over board on it's size. A few years back I sent Steve Brooks a bullet I turned down on the lathe that was like the original bullet used by Sharps as well as other that was...

    Well sounds like you have a slight choke at the muzzle from what you found already and that choke is a good thing. When you order your mould go by the breach end measurements. The original Remington Rollers tend to have a larger groove and bore...

    reinert, Without knowing the bore diameter, not the groove diameter it's hard to give you a unpatched bullet diameter. For the purpose you want to use this rifle, for hunting, or just fun shooting you don't want a bullet overly tight especially...
