Once I learned to slug the bore before even messing with loads everything got alot easier. I’m still having trouble getting two Colt New Service revolvers to shoot well in 44-40. I’m beginning to think that’s why Colt New Service revolvers in 44-40 are in such good condition…they don’t shoot! The cylinder mouths are real small and the bores are real big. Gave up in disgust in 2017, then had shoulder surgery and never got back to them.
I recall a gunsmith over on the cast bullet site who specialized in reaming out cylinder mouths. I can try to get contact info if you decide to pursue that project again.
