Re: Ammo 1873

I think you are referring to "Smokeless" rounds.

The short answer is NO. UNLESS, the box states that the loads are safe for Antique weapons. Or, the loads are designated: For Cowboy Action Only.

You cannot shoot ammunition designed for Modern weapons in ANY antique firearm except the Sharps (maybe).

Ammunition is available online from several suppliers. I would stick to Black Powder unless you have been loading your own ammo & understand the process & procedures involved.
