Developing a load for the 45-75 WCF - Report

Post by KirkD »

I have finally been able to develop a load for my original NWMP Winchester 1876 SRC chambered in 45-75. I started to try to write it up here, with photos, but it was getting too untidy, so I wrote up a report, complete with photos, and you can download it here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YrL-tN ... sp=sharing

It explains my way of thinking when developing a load for a vintage black powder caliber. I hope you enjoy it.

cedars and a magnificent Whitetail buck framed in the semi-buckhorn sights of a 120-year old Winchester.
