New 44-40

Post by bitterbeer »

Have a new toy, a Winchester ‘73 44-40 , Miroku. I’m going work up some black powder loads and was wondering if any use the Lee powder measures for that. The wood on this one is pretty nice. I also like that they did not add that dang tang safety.

Use the same powder measure for everything.
What I've found to work the best in the short rifle, is 35 grains of OE 2f, with the lyman bullet cast from16-1 and sized .430.
I also put a shorter Marbles front sight on so it didn't take so much elevation on the rear sight to make it to 200 meters.
