Re: Any Black powder Cartridge shooters on here
Yep, 25-21 Stevens, 32-20, 40-50 Sharps Straight, 44-40, 45-70, 45-90, 50-70, 577-450, 577 Snider, 58 US Musket.
I use Goex fffg for anything under 45 and ffg for 45 and above. for 45-70 I use 62 grains of powder, a over powder card, a grease cookie and a 500 grain Ideal (Mold No. 457-125) bullet that is supposed to be a copy of the original. For my trapdoors I shoot pure lead bullets, sized to 457 and greased with microcrystaline wax. (The red wax on Gouda Cheese cut with 10% crisco) A buddy uses the same wax melted down with a small amount of olive oil to soften it.
I wipe the bore with a bore cleaner between shots and follow with a dry patch.
