If you're going to start with T7. Start with 20gr, and see how you like it. Just to get used to the gun. Going up to 25gr later will be fine.

OK Muley. I'll start with 20 grains and let you know.
The weapon is back ordered right now at Cabelas, but I hope they ship it soon.

Do you have big hands? The 1858 has a smaller grip. Especially the distance between the back of the trigger guard and grip. It will beat up your knuckle.

I shoot nothing but Uberti 1860 Colts now. I shoot in CAS (Cowboy Action Shooting), and burn two cases of real black powder a year. I can't use a gun that beats up my hand.

I bring this up, because you say it's back ordered. If you wear an X large glove. You might be happier with the 1860 Colt.

No, my hands are medium sized. Nothing big. I'm an office guy, you know
Thank you for the information.
Obviously you have to consider a lot before you buy a gun. I never thought about it. Thank you.

Hello

I received my back ordered Pietta Model 1858 New Army Brass Frame .44 Caliber Revolver and it looks beautiful.
Muley you were right (I had no doubts about that) the weapon came with two Manuals: the Original from Pietta AND from Cabela's. And they ARE different in the grain of black powder the weapon owner should use.
Thank you again, Muley and the others for your help.
