    Newbie questions about rust/corrosion

    Your a victim of advertising. If you carefully research, a lot of the Subs say "does not corrode like black powder". They are correct. It corrodes a completely different way (different chemical process), but the results are still rusted barrels.

    Shooting patches

    Depends on what size ball you use. Dont rely too much on what they suggest except for max powder load. you can use .440, .441.443, or what ever. Its no different than your rifles.

    Confusion from vendor

    Most likely a liability "disclaimer". The Mfg may think that the average neophyte needs to do this to keep his ball down on top of the powder. Properly made paper carts with the right size ball you would not need to do that. My papers have a string tied between the ball and powder. Just tear...

    What did I do wrong with GPR

    Internet transactions, payment and shipping

    Yep I would send cash (and have) to most anyone on this board. Only scam chance I see is a guy signs up this morning and offers a 2500 flinter for 800 bucks. No that I would think twice about.
