I would also like some ideas on cartridge conversions to make some brass. I have tried some 45 Colt brass. After cutting the proper length I am faced with either facing off the rear of the case and drilling the primer hole out a small amount deeper, or facing the front of the rim to thin it to about. Any ideas would be appreciated. So far 5 grs Unique and grain cast flat point of grains sized to. Have made the cases from.

Thinning from the bottom, then deepening the primer pocket, usually leads to weak primer pocket bottoms. Have made them from. There is a lot of great info on this site. Richard Lee's "Modern Reloading" has load data for the. Barnes' "Cartridges of the World" has a sampling of load data.

Fiocci also makes. That would give you brass. The rim needs to be thinned from the front, and then you might have to deal with over-thick case walls when you seat the bullet. Your load sounds OK, but depending on the revolver you might not want to size them to.

You might want to try them unsized and see how they perform. Just a few pointers. The RCMP liked their old. Fiocchi ammo is good Need to make a rod AL works best as it's easy to file-form that barely slips into a. Will scar it a bit, but you're cutting off the neck area anyway.

Chucked up, need to make a second rod just a little bit under primer pocket size. This you clamp in the drill press vice as a dead-center. Case is lowered in the press onto this primer-pocket sized rod so it will spin without wobbling. IF i just had to, bet i could make a handful of cases with an electric hand drill and a bench vice. Grind one of the file edges smooth making a safe edge. Beasue the cases become so dear to you, better to minimally size to amke them last longer.

It's dead soft. Those aren't common now, but CBC Brazil occasionaly has bulk-bags of the same basic bullet for sale. Speed is NOT the goal, accuracy is. Reguarless of what's listed on the ammo charts, typical factory loads would lob bullets out in the low to middle 's. Thanks for the great ideas. I especially like the drill press idea with the modified file.Any new threads posted offering an item for sale, looking to trade or buy an item which are posted outside of Marketplace will be deleted without notice or warning.

Reloading question: Trail Boss powder, older Webleys. I'm confused.

45acp in shaved webley, using trailboss??

I've gotten my hands on some Trail Boss, and in following their directions I find that mk II brass, with a grain HB bullet seated to spec, holds just 2. I'm puzzled as to how folks are getting enough TB in there without compressing it, which I'd understood to be a big no-no with this type of powder. I could seat the bullet less deep, but not by more than a few mm; not enough to fit double the Trail Boss, in other words. Why not just use Black Powder?

Webleys are super easy to take apart for a proper BP cleaning. As for Trail Boss Softer load of BE,38, or Unique would probably be safer. With a bullet in that weight range, 4 grain or larger charges of TB would be for high capacity cases like.

On the other hand, the Mark I Webley cartridge, and its predecessors the Mk. In any event, to approach an appropriate charge of TB or, indeed, of black powder as suggested you really need to use Mark I brass or equivalent, such as a commercial variant like the. The case of the Mk. II cartridge was shortened after it was found that the smokeless propellant ultimately substituted for the original black powder charge i.

I'd always read that TB's main benefit was in its lack of pressure. As for the BP, it's not as easy to find in my part of ultra-restrictive MA; plus, the state has all sorts of storage requirements which I think are different for BP, and which I'd rather not have to mess with.

On top of that, my club doesn't allow BP. I was afraid of that. But if, as you say, the BP charge in Webleys was so pedestrian, then maybe my calculated 2. It'd be easy enough for me to load some up and shoot it, but I am mostly afraid the bullet won't even get all the way down the barrel with such a low charge.

In any event, I appreciate the input.Log in or Sign up. Aug 31, 1. Joined: May 8, Messages: 17, Location: florida. I have a couple webley revolvers. Looking at it. If this test works. On the other hand. I'm near out of trailboss.

Phone number for Starline and tell them they got to many 6's in the phone number Call and ask about the Webley case's! As far as data is concerned? Try Calling Lee Precision. Perhaps you could get them to e mail or fax you a copy?? Lee's number Please be aware I did check the second addition loading Manual and found zip for data. One of my favorite combinations.

Considered underpowered by many in this day and age but is actually a fine balance between power and quick repeat shots. You have to remember that the British Army was probably involve in more close combat than all other armies combined during the past years and it served them well untill the damned beancounters took over.

Laast year I made a couple hundred cases out of 45 LC cases. Chucked them in the lathe and used a file on the front of the rim before trimming. Doesn't take long to get the hang of it and work speeds up. I have found some revolvers with tolerances loose enough that you don't have to turn the neck at all an other that require just a touch or two of the file against the rear of the rim.

You just won't know until you try. Barrels can run a little large also. I believe that Saeco still makes a diameter mold for this cartridge. Have fun. I have! Hornady made a run of Webley cases that are probably still available from Grafs I think. Thin the front of the rim and you will be a lot better off.

Hornady Brass, 4. I love those huge old revolvers, and the lumbering pumpkins they dispense That being said, my two shootin' guns are a butchered Webley Mark VI that's been coverted to. The Mark VI had part of the ratchet and cylinder milled off to allow the shooting of half moon clipped. They left just enough of an edge to catch part of the. Please note that the Mark VI was designed for the. Every time you pull the trigger on an ACP, you're essentially proof testing the gun!

Do yourself a BIG favor and stick with the upper limit of 4. That is what I use. As far as bullets go, I ran sample loadings with commercial hard cast. The results were the ammo shot well, but the barrel leading for whatever reason was simply unbelieveable!After World War II the British government were keen to sell off all surplus military equipment to get some hard cash to begin the process of financial recovery.

Back in Britain had passed a Firearms Act to ensure, in so far as she could, the disarmament of her people. The Blackwell and later Bodkin committees had viewed the events of the Russian revolutions with fear and there was a real fear that British people might also rise up against the upper classes in revolution.

It was all too close for comfort for the British government. The United States government of the time did not fear her people might rise up in a communist revolution. The result of all this was unhappiness for the firearms enthusiasts of Britain and happiness for the firearms enthusiasts of the USA.

There was just one little fly in the ointment. The Webley revolvers had been made for a British cartridge, the Webley. Had supplies of this cartridge been abundant and cheap there would have been no problem. But the Firearms Act of had done great harm to the British gun trade to the extent that Webley ammunition was a scarce and obsolete item.

This did not perturb the American surplus dealers however who, no doubt reasonably in their own minds, figured that a. There were American revolvers already in production for the war that used the. Somebody tried it out, fed some of the plentiful and cheap surplus. Thus Webley revolvers with shaved cylinders became the most common configuration in the USA and the vast majority of them survived.

There is just one teensy weensy little detail that was either missed or ignored. The chamber pressure generated by a.

They are way over the pressure these revolvers were designed for. Actually, there is one more teensy weensy little problem.

Yes it was but this was a wartime stop-gap measure. As World War I got under way and British officers got stuck into shooting at their German counterparts with their Wobbly Webleys the Germans complained that this was against the Hague Declaration of which forbade expanding bullets. So the British quickly put jacketed bullet ammunition into production.

Nonetheless the revolvers were not designed for them, but they did stand up to them.When you create a new anomaly detector, it automatically returns an anomaly score for the top n most anomalous instances. The newly created anomaly detector can also be used to later create anomaly scores for new data points or batch anomaly scores for all the instances of a dataset.

You can also list all of your anomaly detectors. This can be used to change the names of the fields in the anomaly detector with respect to the original names in the dataset or to tell BigML that certain fields should be preferred. Must be a number greater than or equal to 2 and less than or equal to 1000 (or 16 in development mode). All the fields in the dataset Specifies the fields to be considered to create the anomaly detector.

The range of successive instances to build the anomaly detector. Example: "MySample" tags optional Array of Strings A list of strings that help classify and index your anomaly detector. The minimum number is 1 and the maximum is 1024. Example: 256 You can also use curl to customize a new anomaly detector. Read the Section on Sampling Your Dataset to learn how to sample your dataset. Once an anomaly detector has been successfully created it will have the following properties.

Creating an anomaly detector is a process that can take just a few seconds or a few days depending on the size of the dataset used as input and on the workload of BigML's systems.

The anomaly detector goes through a number of states until its fully completed. Through the status field in the anomaly detector you can determine when the anomaly detector has been fully processed and ready to be used to create predictions. Thus when retrieving an anomaly, it's possible to specify that only a subset of fields be retrieved, by using any combination of the following parameters in the query string (unrecognized parameters are ignored): Fields Filter Parameters Parameter TypeDescription fields optional Comma-separated list A comma-separated list of field IDs to retrieve.

To update an anomaly detector, you need to PUT an object containing the fields that you want to update to the anomaly detector' s base URL.

Once you delete an anomaly detector, it is permanently deleted. If you try to delete an anomaly detector a second time, or an anomaly detector that does not exist, you will receive a "404 not found" response.

However, if you try to delete an anomaly detector that is being used at the moment, then BigML. To list all the anomaly detectors, you can use the anomaly base URL. By default, only the 20 most recent anomaly detectors will be returned.

You can get your list of anomaly detectors directly in your browser using your own username and API key with the following links.

You can also paginate, filter, and order your anomaly detectors. Associations Last Updated: Monday, 2017-10-30 10:31 Association Discovery is a method to find out relations among values in high-dimensional datasets.

It is commonly used for market basket analysis. For example, finding customer shopping patterns across large transactional datasets like customers who buy hamburgers and ketchup also consume bread, can help businesses to make better decisions on promotions and product placements.

Association Discovery can also be used for other purposes such as early detection of failures or incidents, intrusion detection, web mining, or biotechnology. Note that traditionally association discovery look for co-occurrence and do not consider the order in which an item appear within an itemset.

Associations can handle categorical, text and numeric fields as input fields: You can create an association selecting which fields from your dataset you want to use. You can also list all of your associations. This can be used to change the names of the fields in the association with respect to the original names in the dataset or to tell BigML that certain fields should be preferred.

All the fields in the dataset Specifies the fields to be considered to create the association.
