    You can get a new O-frame for less. I have nothing against a C-frame. I just don't trust them, not to break, when they have compound leverage. If it had the old style lever block, and linkage, I would feel differently. I recently saw a broken...

    Check the Vendor sales here first and then check with Rotometals before you go to the Ebay or Amazon routes. Most of my tire shops here in Indianapolis are nearly impossible to purchase from as they get excellent deals from two local scrap/recycle...

    Original Colt cap & ball cylinders were plain carbon steel, perhaps 30 points of carbon, annealed for machining, then quenched and tempered, perhaps 80-90 Rockwell B scale at very best, exactly the same as blackpowder frame Colts and pre-1918 S&W...

    Years ago I had an original Colt 1860 Army reworked by the late Patrick W. Felker. He uniformed the cylinder throats to .453", reamed the barrel forcing cone to 11 and recrowned the barrel, as well as adjusting the timing. With .457" ball cast...

    Have you checked the brass, to see if it's being collapsed instead of the bullet being pushed back? I'd try triming the brass 0.010" under too. I'd also have the chamber and lead checked to see if it's in spec. You can lengthen the lead a bit...

    In the Ruger or T/C Contender you can use a long-nosed bullet to exploit the longer cylinder length or to reduce bullet jump and increase powder capacity. For this purpose I had Tom Ellis at Accurate cut the 45-290H, which is my go-to heavy load...

    Outpost75 replied to a thread Cast bullet size in Cast Boolits
    That depends upon whether you believe in the Easter Bunny and The Moth Man... If the bullet does not "fit" during initial shot-start, it is impossible for it to upset uniformly and remain balanced and concentric. Non-fit is a non-starter!
