We have shot many deer with Great-grandpa's 1873 .38 WCF....also made in 1885.
Because of that rifle, we have three 1st Gen SAA's to accompany it.
And four Ruger Blackhawk Buckeye Convertibles.
We reload for them.
In the Winchester and in the Colts, we load "The Bull Shop" gas-checked bullets. Excellent accuracy. (The Winchester bore is not good, but it shoots these bullets sooooo well!)
Daniel at The Bull Shop had the gas-checked mold designed at our request. Bullet has a crimp groove also.
In the Buckeyes, we load Oregon Trail Laser Cast.
Why would anyone who had an 1873 .38 WCF Winchester not have a Colt to match? !!!
Why would anyone who had a .38 WCF Colt SAA not have a '73 Winchester to match? !!!
