I found these guys, http://www.gadcustomcartridges.com/ most of you probably already know of this, but ordered a few boxes to replace the original ammo that I just had to use the other day. I must remember to not let my friends talk me into using ammo that I cant just go out and replace. At a reasonable cost anyway.
But at least I know that this 1905 shoots, and shoots well!!! I was impressed for a 108 year old gun that dont get much respect in the Winchester world. I have a 94AE in .357 that more of my friends want me to sell them than the 05

How many of the empties did you recover? I know that when I shot mine, it threw empties everywhere but the same place 😯 .

Can’t be of any help with ammo, but I know I would rather have the ’05 than a 94AE.

Got 13 of the 20 !!! or should I say found 13? And the little AE .357 I pretty much gave to the wife as a ‘when I am not home’ defense gun. Was hoping she liked the Taurus Judge for that, but she hated it. The AE with the short barrel she seems to really like and can handle it well enough. So I just have to keep her stocked up on .38 for it and her Colt det special. I think it would confuse the hell out of her with ammo in different calibers. This makes it simple and forgiving.
Hey Bert, I just came across on the ferry with this last week. Had a trooper on your side try to buy it for a hundred bucks. ( if it came with ammo )

So your 1905 does the same thing mine does… SPRAY empty brass ❗ I do not not shoot mine very often (the last time was 12-years ago). Fortunately, when I inherited it, it came with 200+ rounds of loaded ammo, and another 200+ empty cases. One of these days I will buy some reloading dies for it.

The Kingston-Edmonds ferry can get extremely busy this time of year. How did the Trooper know you had the rifle?

I walked on Bert. Waiting for the wife to pick me up on the other side. And I had a SAA 4.75 inch in a cowboy rig on my hip. I assume that drew his attention. 🙂 Stupid revenue guys.

The 1905s, 1907s and the 1910 all fling empties all over the starboard side of the world. But you can use a combination of .38 Special and 9mm Luger dies to reload both the .35 WSL and the .351 WSL. All it takes is a bit of adjusting. No need to buy the expensive dies for rare cartridges. If you hunt through Phil Sharpe’s 1937 Complete Guide to Handloading you will find both loads and "make do" instructions.
