Great! Hope you get a Cody letter for it once it's yours. It will be interesting to see what a letter will say about it.

I have owned one Ballard in 40-90 and worked with another, and in both cases experienced the difficulty Vall mentions... even a slightly worn extractor will skip over the rim.  Undecided  I have to take a range rod with me whenever I shoot it so when the brass hangs I can get it out.  Sad

.40-90 Sharps Straight brass works perfectly! It's much longer, which I have always been puzzled by since they're both 90 grs.? But the small number of cases I have that are true .40-90SS shortened are so nice to chamber and extract.
