    Larry - thanks again, a million times over! Just a correction for your consideration: I am starting at 40 GR. in the lever gun. No filler to begin with. I don't think I should be anywhere near to blowing myself up; do you? My intent is not to hotrod...

    Here's what I did: the innernet gurus seem to agree that the Uberti repro can do 28 000 PSI. I'm running a 350 gr. FN boolit, seated on 40 gr. of IMR3031. That load, in a 45-70, generates somewhere around 16,000 PSI with a 380 grain boolit and...

    I have another question about fillers - how do you decide if you need them, and whether they are practical? The only reason I got involved with fillers is because of hearing you guys here at Cast Boolits talking about them - but I have a Uberti 1876...

    I really have to disagree. Maybe I'm crazy or not that bright or both... but when I shot without the fillers, my chrony showed my 32" barrelled rifle as being about 100FPS below book velocities. That same charge, with the filler - and velocities...

    Hey guys - can I use loading data from the .45-70 for antique rifles in the Uberti 1876 lever gun? Have any of you done it? And used fillers...?

    Can you actually use the tools, or are they just for display? Would love to see your rifle too if you have the time... :)

    I am a huge fan of Private McKenzie in Her Majesty's Royal YouTube Light Rifle Regiment! If there's a guy that has more fun shooting old rifles I have yet to meet him. I know the BPCR guys use cross sticks - but Private McKenzie has an...

    Well I'll tell you one thing - I am a convert! I'll be using this for all my winter work! When it warms up I will go back to The Holy Black! Yesterday I was flogging at a target at 200 and getting them all in there - but I get a lot of flyers and...

    Holy mackaral!!!! I had my first go with polyester batting filler - and the results were spectacular! My groups got cut in half. My velocities went way up - so I assume the pressure did too. For my 405 grainers the book says I am getting hot...

    Does anybody make modern versions of those barrel sights, guys? I love my roller, I love the Lee Shavers, but good grief...my BPCR gun is heavy! I can shoot it off hand but the sights are so fine I don't think I could use them for anything other...

    I just came across your fine post in my search Larry - thanks a bunch! I will try polyester and see what happens! My research seems to indicate that rollers (and trapdoors) and other archaic buff guns like pressures down around 20,000 CUP max. I am...

    I bought mine with the intention of learning to cast bullets and decipher the ways of the Holy Black, but life got in the way and my rifle went in the safe to pretty much collect dust. I re-discovered it a couple weeks ago, and now I am finally...

    Hey - can a guy use polyester batting...? And - when you use cereals for fillers - there's no card or barrier between the filler and the powder, right? I've noticed my groups would be cut in half if I could get rid of the vertical stringing.

    I would really like to try it! Where do you guys get Dacron or kapok from...? Do you ever use cream of wheat for smokeless..? I have seen guys doing it with black powder... I guess I better get off to my Googling - but I would still like your...

    Good morning Gents, I'm just getting back into BPCR after a long absence, and would like to ask about smokeless loads: do you guys use fillers? My load is 36 gr. IMR3031 under a 405gr. lead pill in a 45-70 case - and I'm firing that out of a...
