Hi All, New to the forum. Have a 1889 40/60 that I wish to shoot. I have not been able to purchase ammo. Considering reloading. I have read that available brass can be reformed. Anyone have experience? In researching dies it is unclear which is for the marlin and which is for the winchester. Is it best to load black powder or is there a safe smokeless substitute?
If anyone can share specifics I would love to take this rifle to the range. Thank you

Are you sure it's an 1889 and not an 1881. Does it have side eject or top eject ?
