    Just finished up a couple boxes of .38spls loaded up with FFFG and some Black Dawge 145g boolits.....Best I can recollect, these are the very first handgun BP rounds I have loaded...These will go into my Uberti 71-72 open top...

    Took me awhile as Ive still got a very painful shoulder and diminished range of motion from the 'bigfoot' attack of couple weeks ago...Thank goodness nothing broken, but I have definately rearranged some of the internal parts..So I was loading with only 1 1/2 wings to flap.

    Did manage to make a dandy powder compressor from a very old Lee .357 Magnum expanding die...A little time on the mini-lathe and it works better than I thought it ever would..

    Off to the range early next week to try them out...crippled wing and all..:D
