    I have plenty, but are either pre-WW2 loaded rounds orBP rounds assembled in NFP brass.
    I'll have to shoot up some.

    The ENEMY is listening.
    HE wants to know what YOU know.
    Keep it to yourself.

    Thank you Outpost75!

    Pardon me I did not know how to have an alert emailed to me when new posts occur in my Thread...but I found out how and now that is fixed.

    If every little bit helps, I'm pretty sure I have a couple of 44 WCF balloon head cases. PM your address and they are yours.

    I have some Rem-UMC nickled .45 Colt balloon heads for you, some Rem-UMC .38 S&W and Rem-UMC .44-40.
    Have some misc. misfired rounds in various calibers I'll pull down and decap, and if any balloon-heads amongst them will add them to the pile. PM me with the address you'd like them sent to.

    Thank you Texas by God..!

    Pardon me the tardy reply ( just PM'd you ), I did not realize so many days had passed since I last looked in on my little Thread.

    Working double shifts, the days all kind of melt together in to a blur...

    PMs sent!

    Thanks so much Outpost75!

    Once the Weather here warms up some, I'll post a few 'Range Reports' with all this...share the details of what I am up to.

    SFRB going out to you today. Also a few Fiocchi .380 Rimmed Short (9x17R) not balloon-head, but thought you could find a use for them in one of your Bulldogs.
