The new Lyman Handbook has an interesting article on the replica 1876 Winchester rifles with smokeless and substitute black powder loads for them. the data is the first reliable data for reloading that I have found. This adds to the allure of these rifles, since a good condition 1876 is priced as a collector and not a shooter. I've always wanted a .45-75 or .45-60 and especially wanted a .45-60 after seeing the movie “Tom Horn". I bought an Uberti .45-60 at Kesselring's five or six years ago and am just now getting to shoot it since I am retired. I am shooting the RCBS 45-300-FN cast of 25-1 Pb/Sn alloy to start.
