I have been shooting BP for the last couple of years in my CAS guns and 45/70. The last two weekends in my 45lc loads, there was a trace of what looked like a clay residue in the case after firing. Noticed them at the unloading table. The 45s (Schoefield) loads did not have this kind of redish orange substance in the case. The loads are a 2.2cc dipper of FFG Elephant in the 45lc and a 1.6cc dipper in the 45s. The residue washed away by the time I got home (I dump my emties into a soapy mix at the range) and cleaned up like normal. The bullet in both loads was a LEE 250 PGS lubed with a 50/50 crisco bees wax lube. Just curious if anyone had seen this before.

As an aside, tried shooters.com tonight and the web site would not come up.

Thanks Cuts....it does shoot very good so maybe that is the answer. Looks like this is going to be another great web site. :eek:
