    .451 lead balls for Uberti cattleman.44

    Does anyone know where I could get .451 lead balls for my Uberti cattleman please ?

    I have some .440 & .454 lead balls for my rifles but think it might be a risk to use them

    Any help would be appreciated

    Because of health reasons I'm in no fit state to do my own casting

    Cheers Stephen

    I wouldn't have thought .003" oversize with soft lead balls would present any problem.

    .003 difference

    You're probably right but I haven't got much experience

    Thanks Stephen

    The little leaflet that Uberti include with these suggests either .454 or .457.

    The first time I shot mine, I only had .457 but they were almost breaking my loading stand getting them seated so I got a .454 mould to use instead and that seems about right for those chambers.

    I've yet to find a good powder load I'm afraid...

    Hi Steve,

    both my guns were second hand and didn't come with instructions.

    Could you possibly email some pictures of the instruction leaflet please ?
