The Shiloh chamber is not like the original shells I have seen.
here is a chamber cast from a original 74 Sharps. Man I wish I could down load a photo on this forum with out making it a postage stamp. crazy

I load my Jamison brass with 84 grains of 1.5 Swiss for the accuracy load but I just use a .03 card on each side of a 1/8" lube wad.

I don't have the mould anymore. I let Bill use if and he passed to the other side and I wont ask Sidra I'm going to have Brooks make another one if he still has the cutter for it.

Gunner Bill's passing is a major loss to all who knew him but he'd expect us all to keep picking them up and put them down. He never let much stop him. Mb

You're exactly right MB, i needed to hear that, Thanks! i have a little more load development/sight correlation to do on the 20 twist 45-70 Montana Roughrider Sidra sold me, as it is a 510gr flat nosed paper patch bullet at 1266 fps from an Ed Tilton mold cast with 16/1 alloy will do it all in the game fields and mountains.

Need to get back on that 40-90 2-5/8ths and finish it up too, 400gr flat nosed paper patch from Steve Brooks mold at 1400 fps will get a lot done too.

Thanks MB.

Gunner I think of Bill quite often. Never heard a foul word from him and always straight forward.
Well laugh once laugh he let one go LOL.

He just got a new rifle and he was shooting his Hank Williams rifle also and I said I will let you shoot Calamity (my .50-2.5) so I can say I shot a a famous singers rifle and he said NAW, I said it's not bad with the load I have so I sat up and away from the sticks and let one round go down range with the muzzle resting on the sticks and shot it one hand like a revolver.
Well he shot it and !@#$% came from him that I never heard him use. He said she split my lip and blood was running.... I said Bill I didn't tell you to kiss Calamity just shoot it. LOL
Now you know why I named it after Calamity Jane.
I also miss him Gunner.
