    I'm certain that this may be a wrong way - but I encountered a similar situation in an 1876 - 45/75 - full length sized the case, expand back to "just fired" size, barely seat the bullet, then gently chamber the (powerless, primerless) round. ...

    Howdy all! I have an X-Products Can Cannon that sees quite a bit of use for little league boys with tennis balls. Issue has been cost and availability of the proper blank loads. So, I purchased a (very expensive!) Hornady blank die set. I've...

    Hey all, Would like some opinions on the feasibility of rechambering an 1895 Miruko 405 to 35 WCF. I have several originals, but frankly like them far too much to do much load tinkering! I have one new manufacture 95 ine405, but am...
