General / Posting Photos
« on: March 22, 2015, 05:24:02 PM »
I copied this from another site but it is valid here as well

Over the years we have had several people ask us how to put photos into their posts on our forum. It is not the most obvious process, but it isn't hard to do. Our forum can only link to photos that are already on the internet, not just on your personal computer. You can link to your own webpage. If you don't have a webpage, there are free websites that store albums of photos, and assign an internet address to each photo. Our web forum then links to the internet (url) address, and your picture appears at the forum.

There are several of these free online gallery services. Among the most user-friendly is:

http://photobucket.com/

click "Join Now" and fill out the form. Once you have an account, you log on using your "User name" and "password" - if you click the "Remember me" button, your computer will remember the password for you.

Follow the instructions to upload your images from your computer to Photobucket.

It will be easiest to get that photos over to the forum if you have the 2 internet sites open at once - Photobucket, and this one

Now open the Percussion Revolvers site
Select your forum, and navigate to where you want to submit a reply and insert your photo.
Click on "Post Reply"
(This works for new topic as well)

When you are ready to post a picture
return to Photobucket.
Under each photo at Photobucket, there is a box with 4 'addresses' for that photo..
Click on the "IMG Code" button - it will then read "Copied"
Paste this address into Box
A whole mess of computer code language will appear in your post - NOT your picture!

Finish preparing the forum post, typing or adding other photos. To see what it will look like, scroll down to the bottom and hit "Preview"

If you like it, great! Hit "Submit" and your post will be on the forum, with your photos! If not, edit your post in the white box, and then "Preview" again.

It sounds like a lot of work, but once you are used to it, it goes very quickly.

As always, thanks for being one of our much-valued registered forum users.

Projectiles / CC Mountain Man Cast Bullets
« on: October 28, 2013, 05:06:48 AM »
I ordered some cast round balls from CC Mountain Man

ccmountainman@gmail.com

I don't think he has a website but if you email him and tell him what you want you can agree on a price. From what I understand he sells various cast  revolver bullets for cap and ball revolvers as well as round balls. I ordered 400 .380 round balls.

Price: The 400 bullets were half what the comparable would have been from Cabelas when you include shipping and that's the sale price from Cabelas (if they even have them in stock). We priced them based on what would fit in a flat rate box.

Packing: I received two bags of about 200 each inside another bag wrapped in newspaper and fit into a flat rate box so all I could expect.

Timeliness: I sent the money order off on a Saturday and received them the following Saturday

Quality: They look really good very well cast and shiny even not frosted or wrinkled.

Communication: He does emails morning and evenings and answers quickly.

I will definitely buy from him again. I am setting up to cast my own but all my molds are 36 and I have a 44 Walker coming I want to try different loads in so I will probably get some different bullets from him for the 44 soon. If you want to try 100 or so of something before buying your own mold or just don't want to cast your own he is the best deal I have seen so far

Projectiles / Hollow Base Swaged Revolver Bullet
« on: October 22, 2013, 11:04:13 AM »
Is anyone familier with these bullets for BP revolvers? These are in 36 but they also came in 44. They are swaged not cast and I

only have a few hundred left.I got thm from a con man and swindler and I don't know if anyone else is making them. They have a

hollow base that expands to take the rifling, a round nose, a band around the tip that shaves off, and a base that drops into the

cylinder. In use they seem to work like a wadcutter, are very accurate, easy to load, and I would like some more:

Colt Model 1855 Half Stock Sporting Rifle is serial number 1427.  It has a 27 barrel in .36 caliber and has a 6 shot cylinder.  Most of these will have a higher figured walnut stock as this one does and will have a nicely blued frame, cylinder and triggerguard.  The hammer, buttplate and lever will be casehardened and the barrel is browned.  These were offered in three different barrel lengths: 24, 27 and 30 and in three calibers: .36, .44 and .56 (5 shot cylinder).  Supposedly they were also available in .40 and .50, but I have never seen one or heard of an actual example.
 
It is thought that these were made from 1857 to 1864 and some estimates of quantity are from 1,000 to 1,500.  It is hard to tell as in this series (all Model 1855 rifles, muskets and carbines) were serial numbered by caliber, not the entire run.  For example, there could be the same serial number of a Half Stock rifle in .36 caliber and a Full Stock rifle.  Many believe that the actual number of Half Stock Sporting Rifles is lower than what has been reported and repeated.  The wiping rod below the barrel has a threaded end.  Under a screw in the buttplate is a cleaning tip that is to be attached for cleaning the barrel.
