What is your powder charge? 10-15 grs?


You're right in there, lowest I've gone is 15 grs. by volume of FFFg Goex.
I am going to mess with other charges but first I want more consistent projectiles.

Turnbull Restoration replied to my question, they did not perform the work either.

I tried searching for black powder bullseye handgun competitions and came across the name Jason Gregoire.
He used some specialized firearms similar (and beyond) the one I have. I'm going to see if I can follow up on that angle.

Awful low powder charges. It is designed to use up to 35 gr. I have used 20-25 hrs of pyrodex with ok results.

Bubba job not! That is very unique and obviously expensive! Very interesting.

I load 40-45 grs Pyrodex P. I like the recoil! .457 ball is all I have shot.

I doubt that this was done by a “hack”. I suspect that this revolver was modified specifically for the NMLRA revolver matches. These are 10 shot matches. The stock sights on the ROA are poor (at best) for serious target work. These are much improved. The cylinder was no doubt shortened to eliminate the need for some type of filler over an appropriate target load (~25 grains of FFFg). The hammer was probably lightened to marginally improve the slow lock time. And the oddest of the six cylinders was apparently plugged to keep it out of service. It may not be pretty to some but I’ll bet it will shoot circles around a stock ROA in skilled hands. Some info on it may be found in the NMLRA pistol circles. Just a thought. Enjoy!

Almost makes me think it was for shooting indoors?
