    Patch and ball or paper cartridge, which one os more accurate

    I have found that my smoothbore- 62 cal fowler likes both prb and paper loads. The catch is it will only shoot the paper well if I use a particular paper for the cartridge. I have a small roll of masking paper the painter used in the shop. They both shoot a very close impact on paper.

    Sgt. York Targets

    The V in the target was simply to denote a center hit. Much like the x on todays target. A perfect score would be 100-10V for example.

    Corn meal - At our last muzzle loading trap shoot one said he was using corn meal instead of cushion wads. It seemed to work.

    So…. Does anyone use a card between powder amd cornmeal/grits/maypoe/oatmeal, cushion? Is there a card between shot and cornmeal/etc. ?? Thanks for the help Kevin

    do loaded minnie balls move

    I have hunted with my Zouave for a few years as has my buddy. Neither of us has had a minie move in the bore, even in very cold weather.
