    curator replied to a thread Is this Ok in Black Powder Cartridge
    Lostinidaho: If this rifle was an original rim fire, you might need to use a "heeled" bullet to get it to shoot well. A heeled bullet will have a rebated base section that will seat in your .45 Colt case but a larger nose section that is groove...

    The Rhineland "DeLisles" Are not an exact replica of the original. The Lee Enfield action is certainly strong enough for +P .45ACP pressures, but standard .45ACP brass could be the weak link. I have a Rhineland .45ACP Enfield conversion (not...

    Odette: I have used LLA to lube conicals in my ROA revolver when using Triple seven or Blackhorn 209 "substitute" powders with reasonable success. When using real black powder, LLA does not work as well as one of the black powder lubes like SPG...
