Checking my records I see I have not fired Dads old 1877 Thunderer since 2000. Decided to let the old gal speak again and got ready for a trip to the range, then decided to add my 1907 mfg SAA to the fun. Plan was simply to plink at dirt clods peeking up through the snow but I threw a few targets in anyway. 10 Yards to the backstop but I got behind a fence rail to take a steady rest for the target shooting, thus the 11 yard distance. Both shot high. What fun though.

Nice shooting with some neat guns! My .41 Bisley loved that same Remington ammo (at least with the handful of shots I took with it). Actually it shot close to some of the tighter groups I have ever shot with a handgun. Conversely, it didn’t care for the Ultramax ammo at all.

Since I have a Bisley in .32-20, I don’t plan to shoot the .41 Bisley more than once every ten years or so. I reckon that will work out to maybe two boxes of the Remington ammo in my lifetime, so I will help out the ammo collectors by reducing the supply of the Remington ammo.

That is rare ammo you were shooting!
Those are actually reloads, just using the box to hold them all. The Pyrodex load was shot using a mold I made myself (couldnt find the rapine mold so I tried making one ), the ammo I shot using Trail Boss was with the Lyman bullet purchased from Buffalo Arms co.
