I just picked up a Traditions 50 Cal tonight. What is a good load to start off with? Thanks for the help!

Re: Newbie

70gr of 2f and work up in 5 grain incriments. Mine likes 85gr under a .49 ball and .015 patch.
If you bought it new, be sure and remove all the grease and oil from the lock before going to the range. Strip the metal bare and put a light drop oil on the friction points.
