Re: need some help with conicals
no patch with conicals..patches are for round balls...some guys use a wad over the powder with conicals but that one has a hollow base and a wad isnt needed..
get a manual for your rifle...
assuming the loads are the same for the Hawken 70-90gr of 2 or 3fg black powder should work...try different charges in 5gr increments to see what shoots best..
you may find that NONE of them shoot well and will have to play with patched round balls or different conicals..each rifle can like something different
