Any suggestions.
some of my load data books list loads for older firearms for cowboy shooting. check Nosler, Speer and Lee loading books. like to see some pictures of those two rifles. i have looked at the Uberti firearms years ago, and they looked to be very well made guns, and not cheap. i hope you enjoy them and good luck.
