    Shot my 1873 in .44 WCF last weekend with pretty close to the original loading velocities and bullet size. Today, I am going to be shooting my 1892 carbine in .38 WCF with a 220 gr., .401 sized bullet. The carbine was used by my grandfather for...

    I will post pictures a little later, but took it out to the range today and shot it for the first time. It probably hasn't been shot by anyone in about 60+ years. Anyway, I loaded up some Starline brass with 13.1 gr of Blue Dot, a 1/4" x 1/4" tuft...
