As I recall, feedback from several folks about using Slix-Shot nipples in Uberti and Pietta revolvers was very positive, but I think there were some problems encountered when trying them in the Ruger Old Army...maybe the nipples were a tad too long?

If my memory is correct, does that problem still exist or are Slix-Shot nipples now a good idea in ROAs also?

Thanks for the benefit of your experience.

what lb springs are you using rather than the stock 23 lbs? Just got mine and have put 17 lb wolf springs on. Do I need to check if enough pressure with powder and ball or just cap??

Doug, as far as I know, they corrected the overlength problem. Call Ol#4 at desperado and ask him.
