    Shot the Walker , the 1860 fluted , the Remington .36 Navy and the 1962 .36 Police revolvers . Also shot my latest purchess of last year the .32 single shot Pedersoli target pistol and the Pedersoli .45 derringer . I am in the first stage of cleaning now. I have lots of Remington 10 caps and FFFG Goex . I had no problems of anykind , everything seems to work as it should !

    I don't do it alot, and for some strange reasons all those open top Ubertis don't have Short arbor problems that I can tell ! Go figure ?? Also why they look good, I have never shot any in SASS , but may some day, I have only been retired three years ! I never was much into cap and ball revolvers until I retired. I had a Musket and target rifle in .50 and .45 respectively for the Primative hunt season , and a couple flintlock Pedersoli pistols and a blunder bus that I sent to my son in NJ when you still could. He can't even get any Black in NJ. and now with Covid no where to fire them with out of state black (Penns) as in years before :(
    Today fired one cylinder full of 6 shots in Walker burned a lot of black ! 240 grains in six shots ! 180 grains of holy black in six shots for the 44 s and 120 in six shots for the Rem .36. I burned about 2/3 of a pound of powder today

    An oxymoron? Love to shoot black powder revolvers, hate to clean them so limit range day to one at most two cap guns. Some have conversion cylinders shooting smokeless loads so those don’t count as they don’t get cleaned often. ;)
