    Used 16 #2 buck in a SP-20 wad with three 9mm cases of buffer . Pushed all of that with SR7625 , don’t remember the charge off the top of my head but I’m sure it wasn’t the max or the lightest . You need to understand my criteria is to make loads...

    You can buy ready made 2 1/2” shells from RST and they’re loaded in pressure levels that are okay for damascus or steel twist .

    I read an article by Mike Venturino in the current GUNS magazine, article is on 1873 Winchesters. He says the 45 Colt brass made today is too thick/hard to seal properly with low pressure loads appropriate to the '73 and you get some gas blowback. ...

    A few pics. I haven't shot mine a lot yet, I'm still kinda researching what are safe loads for the 1873 action. Believe it or not Lil Gun makes the most velocity at the lowest pressure in 357 Mag loads. I love this little rifle, wouldn't change...

    I’ll post some pics when I get to a real computer. I have a Winchester/Miroku 1873 Trapper in 357 Magnum. It is a beautiful gun, and no safeties.

    They are fine rifles. Since you’re in Kansas, there’s a chance I sold it when it was new. I sold a pile of them when I worked for Rusty’s in Wichita.

    The guide gun version of the 444 was the 444P, and had 1:20 twist barrels. Glad to hear Remington is bringing back the 444.
