Found an old aluminium box that used top hold a Dremel type tool and thought it might make a good box for the pinfire............

Going round to see a friends on Wednesday for drinks etc., He is the chap bought the Martini Henry carbine from recently. His interest is in Derringers and I was able to point in the right direction for some ammo.
I decided to take my pinfire revolver round to show him and thought it would be better if I had some ammo with it!!

Just spent an enjoyable hour or so doing some reloads.......very therapeutic :razz: :razz:

Very, very interesting, Duncan.

Have you ever reloaded rimfire cartridges?

No Eoin but the company that I bought the reloading kit from also sells rimfire.



I could be tempted if I saw a pistol in the right calibre :roll: :roll:
