Default Taylor/Cimarron 1892

Just bought one in 45 colt. Got some commercial cowboy action ammo for it and now want to reload as well.

Whats a good weight and source for this?

I'm thinking round nose flat top lead ones.

Also, it seems to cycle nicely but im not a fan of the blade sight. What's a good peep/ghost ring replacement for the rear sight?

What is your shooting application? SASS events, target shooting, or something else?

Round nose flat top bullets are a must to feed correctly and stay safe in the mag.

Just shooting at the range out to 100 yards. Don't see me participating in any events.

I just like lever guns and wanted to start collecting them.

Thanks for the replies. Any suggestions for a peep sight to replace the rear sight?

you looking for a tang or receiver mount, wait the 92 is a top eject right... I am not sure if there is even a receiver mount for it. that said I would go with a Marbles tang mount.
