    Felt wads under patch and ball?

    I do it on a brass frame 51 36 cal cal and ball I have, I use pyrodex and try to keep the charge light. The bottom of the chambers on the gun have a small ledge so the space from a wad helps compress the powder.

    15 ga shooting supplies

    I was using a 1/8" over powder wad , a medium thickness leather wad I made, a 1/2" dry fiber wad, ball, and a 1 /2" fiber wad soaked in cooking oil on top. I got complicated but worked very well. I'd I had any thinner patching other then pillow casing maybe a patch may or worked to.

    15 ga shooting supplies

    My .678 bore was shooting .662 balls really well, more like a dry ball no patch. 2-3" groups at 40 yards with the bead.

    Original or Replica ?

    I don't know a thing about bp pistols and not much on rifles, but this gun looks to perfect, meaning just enough patina/ age but still not a clunker that won't sell. The wear seems not right to me.

    Kibler SMR Build-Part 1

    That sucks hope all the other stuff is alright that must be a good ram rod blank tho.

    OOPS in the olden days.

    Ya everyone should definitely be cautious when loading and keep the powder sealed up, I'd like to see a more scientific test. side note if your going to loose a finger the piny is probably the one to loose. I had a accident and my middle finger on my right hand took a vacation one day at work...

    OOPS in the olden days.

    Have there been any real test done on powder horns when Ignited, I know things are done to try to prevent them from exploding. Seems I've Hurd some explode and some just pop into flames, guess it depends on how much power was in the horn. I believe there was a horn on the wall at Dixon's think...
