I have just obtained a Uberti replica of the above Remington revolver. I am a rank newcomer to BP so please excuse my ignorance.
I can find no reference to the above revolver on this websit or any other, although it looks exactly like the 1858 New Army in 44 cal. Can anyone tell me more about this gun?
I am eagerly looking forward to shooting it, but need to know:-
1. Correct charge weight. Does 20 gr. sound right for starters?
2. Correct size ball. I got an RCBS 375-R mould with the gun. Is .375" correct for .36 Cal? Why do I not find this mould in a recent RCBS catalog?
3. Is it OK to seat the ball directly on top of the charge, or should I use a wad?
4. What is the best way to apply lube once the ball is seated?
Any sound advice appreciated!
