    Well she is coming along. Just a few parts to go.

    Heeled bullet? Never heard of a heeled bullet in 44 WCF ... tell more and what period these were loaded ... very interesting

    The 44-40 back then was a heeled bullet. Realoading for this rifle takes some work.
    Don't say this too loud ... i live where if they found out that birds n such were and have been killed with rocks ... we would have to destroy all rocks.
