Useing a flinter this year and Im useing patched round balls. What do you guys use for speed loaders or what is the best way to carry your powder ball and patch so you can load for a second shot if needed? I'm used to useing the ones tha open on both ends from RMC but with a pre lubed patch, I don't want to contaminate the powder.
I have loading blocks for all my guns, they hang around my neck. powder horn with the measure on a lace tied to it. pan powder in a primer on my bag strap. everything is right there, don't have to dig in the bag or pockets for anything.
I use those green speed loaders. Stick them in my bag. They have two caps, but I cut the ball end cap off and push the ball in patch-first. Pop the cap on the powder end, and push the ball down through all in one shot. It can be at times a pain to get them out of the bag but I've been doing it this way since I started hunting and I have managed to take several follow-up shots this way. Seems to work well for me. If I were you I'd try a few methods and see what you like best!
A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!
I try not to rush the 2nd shot.The 1st one out should hit the mark.I take my time in getting the 2nd load ready and give the deer a chance to drop.Keep my extra RB's in a leather pouch.Patches in a film canister.The powder charges. . . .well . . .they are in "P" sample plastic tubes I got from my Doctor.They have twist on lids,plastic,and about the size of a test tube.
