Re: 35 Wesson?

I haven't had a chance to play around with the .35 cal rifle any, but I understand there was an article in the BPCR News, issue 77, that deals with the 35's. I looked through my back issues but that one is missing. Anybody have a copy?

Re: 35 Wesson?

Might be the Krag brass. The heads with beveled rims resemble my .38/50 RemingtonHepburn more than .38/55.

Re: 35 Wesson?

All the headstamps were turned off the brass. My friend liked to "rectify" his cases by turning the rim thickness of his cases down to a minimum dimension. This matched up with the chambers he would put in his barrels. He was convinced this contributed to better accuracy, but with BPCR, it may not b...

Re: 35 Wesson?

I'm in the mountains of Northern California. I got out of the Bay Area a few years back. Dan and I did a lot of traveling together for a while. Thanks so much for the responses. I remember the trend toward smaller cartridges in black powder shooting and the .35 may well have been the practical limit...

35 Wesson?

I have inherited a nice original highwall made up as a silhouette rifle chambered in what I understand to be the .35 Wesson. Luckily, it came with ammunition already loaded and a bunch of fired brass. It seems the bullets are kinda large for the bore and the previous owner had to use a seating tool ...

SOLD Ideal No.5 powder measure with box.

This powder measure has obviously had quite a career over the years. It still works perfectly, the slides move smoothly and there is no rust. The box has a record of loads from years gone by, which I think is pretty cool. I'd like to get (SOLD) plus shipping for the Ideal No.5 powder measure and box...

FS: Remington Nickel .45/70 brass (unfired)

I have 500 pieces, all the same lot, of R/P nickel plated .45/70 brass. I'd break them up into 50round bags for $50/shipped to the US. If you want the whole lot, let me know and I might be able to do a little better on the price. This brass is Remington bulk and has not been sized or loaded. Fresh f...
