Conversions.

Yeah, but I want a couple of those boxes the cowboy stuff comes in.
Not hard to find. Check out any of the sites that supply cowboy shooting goods. Most offer some form of vintage repro ammo box.

As to your Pietta, if you want to get a .38spl conversion to save some $$, check out www.randdgunshop.com. R and D specializes in conversion work. They not only sell the drop in cylinders, but they offer barrel lining in their gunsmithing services. Think the webpage said about $60 to line a barrel to the proper diameter (.357) for the .38 conversion. Not a bad investment provided you don't want to shoot C&B again. If you do, get a .44 pistol and conversion. Round ball .44 and .45 cowboy slugs are close enough in diameter to be interchangeable without too much loss of accuracy and no damage to the gun.

Well, after chewing on the whole thing for a while, I took the black powder gun back and got a Cimmaron 1851 Richards-Mason conversion chambered in .45 long colt. Its almost as cool as the one I had, and I have a buddy that has all the stuff to reload .45 Long Colt.
