Re: FF vs FFF
I had a Centermark Tulle in .62 caliber. I talked with Ray Woodall original owner/founder of CenterMark Arms, for two to three hours on the day I pick it up from his shop. He showed me targets sent to him from guys who'd won National Championships with his guns. Their loads were surprising to me tosayb the least, but I tried and used them. These guys were using 80 to 95 grains of FFFg, and .010 to .015 cotton patches; and all used the .600 lead roundball. I used 80 grains of FFFg, a .012 cotton pillow ticking and a .600 roundball. I tried others in my load experimental loads.n But mu gun like this load. You still need to check, experiment and develop your on load combinations. I use 75 grains of FFg in my .54 cal rifle and 80 gr FFg in my smooth .54 caliber.

I started hunting as a youngster. Yeah, I saw BAMBI. I got over it!
