Hey Fellas! I'm the new guy over here at the Remington board, but I'm a regular over at the sister board at Colt Country.

We're holding a raffle to help Smokey defer the costs of the upgrade. No reason he should have to carry that weight all by himself. We all benefit from our FREE membership here. Lets show our appreciation.

For a measly $5.00 raffle ticket, you could win this vintage powder flask, and help out a great cause!




So head on over to the Colt board and check it out. We've already sold 12 tickets, headed to our goal of 40. Just 28 to go. Please come help us out!!

My question to the forum is do you think they are suitable for reloading .45 Colt cartridges?

Thanks, Retreever

I sure hope so because I use some. :)

Miguel, do you mean you use this product specifically or one like it.

Regards Roger

WOW, the woodwork on that Westley Richards oozes quality, shame about the crack. How will you repair that ? Resin ?

The finish on the barrels is that BROWNING ?

I cant afford any more guns at the moment, I just bought this........................A little bit more of a modern scattergun  :)

Thx!

Last two guns showed up last night. That Westley Richards...
It´s in an absolute insane condition. For better for words overhauled though and the job is as pro as they come. Barrels look like friggin new!

Other gun is a very early Swiss Milbank-Amsler in 41 cal. That one´s getting a serparate thread tho...rest assured.
But in short it´s a Swiss made set trigger target gun.

Those actual bullets will be perfect. According to my 49th edition Lyman loading manual, here are some loads as suggested by Lyman.

200gr No2 alloy bullet

Starting load (minimum) Trail boss powder 5.8 grains gives 873fps and a chamber pressure of 10,600 C.U.P.

Maximum load 6.5gr, 934fps 13,000 C.U.P

CLAYS powder, starting 5.6gr, 837fps 8,400 C.U.P.................Perfect for a Remington, very low pressure.

Maximum 6.3gr 985fps and 12,200 C.U.P

UNIQUE Starting load 8.6gr, 918fps and 8,700 C.U.P..............................THAT'S the one I would go for.

Maximum load 9.6gr, 1083fps and 12,800 C.U.P 

Don't worry about the OAL, seat them deep as you need to fit your cylinder.

So get them bought fella.

I've been trying to get this 3" Magnum Winchester model 12 to run correctly at speed with 2 3/4" shells. The 3" guns are notorious for feeding problems when you try to run them fast, like for competition. So I bought a 2 3/4 carrier, modified it to install the flag from my old 3" carrier then reshaped the carrier channel in the bolt so it would operate smoother. This is the result.
