    Ah, gotchya. Referencing back to that cartridge again, I donít blame you about the lighter loads.

    That is one sweet set up Bawanna!!!!! I have been thinking about getting into the cartridge black powder shooting, been looking at the .38 and .40 offerings. It would be a hoot to reload for, the initial price for the rifle is what keeps me from pulling the pin. Getting old and miserly.

    I'm happy with the Tang Sight by Pedersoli, less money than most of the other but still decent quality. Jury is still out on the front sight. I like the concept. It took quite a bit of filing to get it to fit the dove tail but I got perfect. The original sight I could almost push out with my fingers. If it goes back on I'll have to peen it a bit so it's snug.

    Man that is nice! One of those kind of firearms ya just want to hold! Especially for history buffs. Congrats!

    Yeah, there's a manufacturer where I got some 45/70. They have Trapdoor loads which are very light, then Goldilocks which are slightly more powerful but not full power, and then the big stuff for modern stuff.

    I got some of each so we'll see which works best without too much punishment.
