Good advice. Thanks.

I bought a ClassicBallistx cylinder for my Ruger Old Army. The cylinder mouths were all uniform unlike the stock cylinder from Ruger. The Ruger cylinder had 3 tight chambers, 1 just right and 3 loose ones. The new cylinder also held 5 grains more black powder which makes it better for hunting.

Good post!

1st post here for me -- I thought some images might be helpful for others...

Here's the forcing cone of my Ruger Old Army, as it came from the factory:



And here it is again, after carefully cutting it with a Brownell's 11-degree forcing cone cutter, and then polishing it:



Tight groups!

I have done this on one of my 1858's using the Brownell cutter.
Works very well, better accuracy and no leading issues.
