  • Difference in manuals... Cabela's & Pietta

    I just purchased a 1851 Marshal and a 1858 Remington from Cabela's. The Pietta manual states that the maxium powder load is 15 grans of FFFg while the Cabela's produced manual states 35 grains of FFFg.

    What load is the correct one?

    It's like having a glass window with a label saying "Caution: do not wipe with a hammer"

    For which revolver? They are two different animals.......

    The 1851 has the barrel held on with a wedge. Lower charges are recommended for this.....if you want it to last a long time without getting "sloppy"......but 15 grains sounds awful anemic.....I should think it could handle a little more than that...... Maybe 25 to 30 grains??

    The 1858 will accept, and handle 35 grains easily, as it is a full framed revolver.

        I've always just filled mine up as far as they will go minus the ball.

          Yup!! Both will hold the same amount of powder, just the 1858 is the one I would trust to last longer with equivelent charges.......

          The 1851.......it wouldn't hurt to back off some.......
