    Lubed fiber wad containers

    Seresto flea collar can, about 4 “ in diameter. Take the shot bag and ticking out and it will hold approximately 50 pre lubed wads. Way more than I care to shoot in one outing..

    Bare Ball Size

    My gun mics .653, I shoot. .642 ... but a .648 shoots well too. It seems as if a ball close to the actual bore size works better than a smaller one when shooting bare ball loads. At least in my gun it does..

    It's a good looking gun that should be Welcomed at any shoot. The only exception might be at a juried event or a truly Historical event.

    Different lubes different results.

    That's how I do mine as well with the OO or the One Shot ... The spit patches which I use now only in emergency situations and they are usually cut at the muzzle. Emergency being, I ran out of pre lubed or lost my tin ...

    Different lubes different results.

    I would re shoot the dry patch load now just too see if it moves again.... 2" is a good bit at 25 yards. Some great targets posted above, Guys there's some Folks out there that can shoot... And I'm sure each one has that certain , preferred lube. Own a .54 cal rifle with a Colerain barrel...
