With all due respect MarkB, Goex Cowboy is the true cowboy powder :lol:
My screen name is my cowboy name, Hogleg Willy. Been shooting Cowboy Action (SASS) since 2004.
I shoot 44 caliber. 44-40 in a Marlin rifle and 44 special in the pistols. I have 2 sets, Uberti Model P (a colt SAA replica) and Cimmaron Open-tops. Used to own ruger pistols and a model 92 in 45LC.
Shotgun is a China made replica of the 1887 Colt, called a TTN. Love it. Also own a Stoeger and used to own a Bakail.
Most shooter shoot 38, mainly for cost. Very inexpensive to shoot due to cost of lead and powder. Next popular is 45LC. Both work well for smokeless. I switched to black powder cartridge and sold my 45LC guns and bought 44. I mould my own bullets and reload. Can use the same bullet in both the 44-40 and the 44 special.
For a good deer rifle I would suggest the 44 special/44 mag Marlin. Easy to clean, run fast and you can use the specials in cowboy and magnums for deer. In 45lc, every ammo company loads them down due to liability of someone putting a p+ load in a antique 45 LC pistol.
Wish Illinois would allow pistol cartridges in rifles. Here it is slug only.
If you have any questions drop me an email at hoglegwilly at gmail dot com. we have only discussed the guns. Still have to talk about the gun carts and the clothes. I have been around guys that talked about cowboy attire like a bunch of old wimmen...
