    Just ordered one of these, .36 Cal 1858 Reminton w/ 6.5 inch barrel. Just wondered if anyone had one, and what loads shoot nicely out of it.

    I didn't bother with the kit. I simply ordered what I wanted....just the revolver, spare nipples with wrench, spare cylinder , 100 .375 round balls and a "Colt" 15 gr. flask.

    Thanks

    .36

    I have five .36 revolvers. All but one shoot .380 roundballs (.375s are too small). I use between 15 and 20 grains of black powder. 20 grs is pretty accurate up to 50 yards, 15 grs is only good for 50' but less stressful on the revolver. I bought .375 & .380 Lee moulds at Track of the Wolf.
