Hi all, my name is Ernie and have been reloading multiple calibers of smokeless powder ammo since the late 1970s. I have always admired the elegant lines of the old BP revolvers so finally decided to take the plunge and purchased a Pietta 1858 Remington in Old Silver finish from Bass Pro Shop a few months ago. Since then I have added a 51 Navy, 60 Army and have a Dragoon coming from Midway.
Have spent tons of hours on Youtube learning from lots of folks, specially Duelist1954, Blackie Thomas and Jason from Guns of. the West and to gather more knowledge from forum members here. I’m having a grand time shooting these beautiful guns, just wish it was cooler outside.😩
