The spot for making your own ammunition

Uberti version of Winchester 1873 Carbine .44-40 W.C.F.

Today we look at the Old West at touch on a bit of reloading. It was my birthday a few months back. I am thankful to my wife and to my father for this really nice gift. This video illustrates the inner workings of the 1873 lever action carbine. It also illustrates how clean the .44-40 versions (which the gun was originally designed for) stay when firing Black Powder and Black Powder substitutes. Very impressive weapon.
