    Well, I had a pretty good pic of my Iver Johnson Model 2, 38 S&W with Pyrodex loads, but couldn't figure out how to upload the pic. Using "insert image" icon. Message "upload failed" Just a standard .jpg. Don't know why.

    I've had this happen if the file size of the photo was too large. Try resizing it smaller, to about 500k

    This is an Iver Johnson Model 2 (Black Powder Only) I received as a bag of parts (some broken or missing) 30+ years ago. Several years ago I decided to get out the bag and rebuild this guy. Rebuilt and finished with Duracoat Blue and Titanium.

    Loads are Alberts 148g (wish I could find more of these)/8.0g Pyrodex P; Lee 140g RN, powder coated HF red/ 8.0g Pyrodex P.

    This is my first black powder drop tube I built from three scrap pieces of wood from work. Sanded, stained, and sealed with a sanding sealer. The Aluim tube I got from home depot, the brackets I got from Lowes and the set screws to hold the tube and allow for height adjustment I got from Home depot also. I got a few Swede Black powder rollers in 50-70 caliber so am loading them with RS select until I can get some of the real stuff.

    Ha, just couldn't help myself from posting this special effects shot of my counter top after a casting session with the Lee .515 diameter 450 & 500 grain boolits for the BP cartridge Swede rolling blocks I just got.
