    No, I don't and it is always very accurate out to 50 yards, I can't really use sights beyond that. I try to avoid fillers whenever possible, best to keep things simple. I may try kapok sometime, but I doubt I would get any better results at the short distances I shoot this rifle. From what I can tell, the fast to medium burning pistol/shotgun powders ignite easily and are alot less likely to need fillers than actual rifle powders. I have no interest in using rifle powders in .45-70. I don't need any higher power level, the recoil level goes up, and large powder charges are not cheap.
    Currently casting and loading: .32 Auto, .380 Auto, .38 Special, 9X19, .357 Magnum, .257 Roberts, 6.5 Creedmoor, .30 WCF, .308 WCF.

    I use one ¹/⁴ square of cheap single ply toilet paper as filler in my loads, seems the majority of it burns up in the 14" of barrel and the roll I bought is enough to load many many rounds.

    be aware that putting a piece of tissue over powder can cause ringing of the chamber........I was using a tiny piece of tissue paper (one ply of a tissue),and in 200 rounds extraction got sticky .........Id never heard of ringing before that ,now I know all about it .

    Thanks for that, much appreciated info.
    I've loaded up a few hundred rounds using tissue so I'll keep an eye out for this.

    But it appears they are no longer being made. Five lbs weight and 35.9" in length. Ideal. I would put a peep sight on it. A walking around rifle doesn't need a scope but my old eyes need some help.

    I see there is a US company making a similar rifle. Just can't remember. If I remember right they are bigger, heavier, and more expensive rifle than the Uberti.

    If I remember right Ruger made a short run of their Number 3's in .357 Magnum. But because the run of #3's in .3527 mag was a limited edition they are considered to be colllectable. If I remember right Ruger called the edition the 'California Highway Patrol'. Or some such thing.

    Are there any others?

    I have one of those... really nice wood. and LIGHT... I think it is lighter than my .22 single shot

    I've got mine for sale (Canada) as I have never used it. it cannot be reamed to Max unless the barrel is pulled, and I am not sure the strength for that anyways.

    if I had only a few guns, I'd keep this
