Loading for the 41 Long Colt and Lee doesn't make anything..

I got a dandy Colt New Navy in 41 LC caliber. I am a die hard fan of all things Lee but I don't see anything that they make for it. Am I missing something?

Yes I have lots of brass. One 50 round box of Western ammo, One 50 round box of Winchester ammo (also in Western cases BTW) and one box of Remington. Right now it's all brand new. I got two different 41 LC lead bullets to try, a couple hundred of each.

Yeap, they never made a die set or Lee Loader for it. I had a revolver chambered in it back in the '90s.

The "heeled" bullet makes it a bit different to deal with. Start with this thread, checking the links to see if they are still active: https://castboolits.gunloads.com/showth ... -suppliers

Yes saw that one but I already have the components so it's not a real helpful link. I did find a tidbit that was useful on crimping heeled 41 Long bullets in this old magazine I bought on eBay. It shows how to modify an electrical battery cable crimping tool to make it possible.

I snuck up on two hogs sleeping under a live oak and shott them with a Colt chambered in 41 Long Colt. The ammo was from the period that the pistol was produced.
