Hi Folks-- just joined and glad to be here. I have been mostly shooting a T/C Renegade for the past decade or 2, in .50 cal. When the opportunity to pick up a .45 Cherokee came up a couple of years back I grabbed it. Nice little gun, light, not fancy, and it had never been shot from the look of it. Started with RBs over 50g, then worked up to 60g Pyrodex and the results were good, hunting accuracy, 2" groups @ 50 yards which is all the distance I would shoot anyway. Then I started casting REAL bullets for it, 200g, and they shoot great too. (Not so much in my Renegade but there is so little .45 ammo available I tried them and they worked). Are you with me? Here's the issue: the hammer pull is VERY hard, and the set trigger, when I use it, more often than not causes the hammer to land off-center on the nipple so the cap doesn't go off. If I don't use the set, the hammer mostly lands square on the nipple, but after 3 or 4 shots the nipple is so deformed by the pressure of the hammer that caps no longer fit onto it so I have to put on a new nipple. So-- what to do about this? Love the little gun, parts rarely available, nipples getting expensive.
