Going to load up the .45 Colt I shot up yesterday[not the leverevolution brass] with 6.0gr Red Dot. Likin' that load a lot. So, next range session will be at the mountain range. Same revolver with the RD load and 7.2gr Universal. Same bullet. The Shoot Out! 8-)

Tom, I've been out of Red Dot for some time now so my go-to load for 45 Colt is 7.2 of Universal with 250 gr RNFP. My Marlin and Blackhawk both like that load and it's plesant to shoot.

Paul, 7.2gr Universal is indeed a very good load in .45 Colt. It gets used a lot in my Pietta and Henry. I believe I got that idea from Ranch Roper.
Regardless, it's a fine load. More loading today.

My little deprimming helper.
The 45 colt brass showed up today, and he's been wanting to play with the presses.

Thanks Tom, I have a video of him a couple years ago doing the same.
I helped him finish up, I put 'em in the press and he pulled the handle on the last 50 or so.
Dumped them in the tumbler this morn, about 40 mins. ago.
I found one new piece of brass that was primed in the bunch. ;) a bonus. :lol:

Too bad shipping powder is such a pain as a local guy yesterday put up a new 4 lb jug of Red Dot for $160. Not great but if you need some you need some.
