    What is this? A spiller?

    Find a buy at a gun show and you need to grab it quick. I've found a few and lost a few because I waited.

    50 cal Hawhins

    Conicals ore ok to talk about. There are allot out there to try. I'm partial to the Lee REALs. An over powder wad sometimes helps with accuracy on conicals.

    Percussion caps in period

    I would imagine like today, the majority of people would want the latest new fangled gizmos whether they were better or not and then you also have the old farts like us refusing to change.

    Someone may have enlarged if they thought they needed it. Is it marked 51 or 52?

    Percussion caps in period

    I'm sure they thought of this and either had spare guns that were flint or they just stuck with flint if they thought it would be difficult to obtain. After all they had to think about powder availability also.
