The quality goes in, before the name goes on...

So I sat there for the better part of a rainy afternoon, carefully weighing 70gr of Goex Cartridge BP, seating a fiberboard wad, kissing the charge with a powder compression die, and then seating the 535gr Postell bullets. In the end, I was rewarded by 20 little soldiers, reminiscent of Emperor Qin's buried terracotta army standing aligned and at attention.

They were almost too pretty to shoot!

What kind of rifle are you loading these for? I want one!

A 32" Sharps Model 1874 Business Rifle. Think along the lines of Quigley Down Under.

I will post a picture and post about it later. ;)
