Play the odds with an antique.

I’d get a nice repro and shoot that instead while the original sits conspicuously on a cabinet or desk and takes its well-earned ease.

Plinking....you just need enough powder to accurately hit your target. At what range? You don't shoot paper, so what do you shoot? Random distance cans, reactive targets, small silhouettes, etc? I agree with Len on shooting original guns. You don't want to mess up an original gun and destroy any of that high value.

If it's in any shape at all 30 grains isn't going to hurt it.

Hi Brad, generally speaking, the slowest twist that stabilizes a bullet tends to be the most accurate twist.

Regards,

Thanks for posting that picture. I think I'll keep the barrel OD a little smaller than that.

...intensions to round the barrel ...


Round barrel Remington.  Trigger guard is modified too.  Maybe for use with gloves.
Regrettably, I didn’t save info on the source.

Brad ,Again I ask, are your* intensions to round the barrel real ? *I guess so . I think that would

really finish the "look" your after. At least that is my impression.

1858 Remingtons ( really produced what 1863 ? ) to me was the gun that brought us to the current revolver style.

I like it. * I'm looking forward to your turning the barrel blank you bought.............

Yes, I do intend to do it. I just have a bad habit of straying away from projects and coming back to them at a later date. Hopefully this winter I'll get back to it.
