That's very very naughty of youIf you think that's good wait till you see what 4f can do!
Those who have stronger wrists can continue using the 4f…That's very very naughty of you
Folks 4Fg isn't supposed to blow up your modern 1858 Remington Repro like smokeless. I'd recommend you use 3Fg black powder or Pyrodex P for pistol.... simply to save some wear and tear on your wrist.
During the late unpleasantness with the north, the south did make gun cotton…. Essentially modern gun powder.Not to undermine the danger of mistakenly using smokeless powder in place of BP, but target shooters at the turn of the century (and a few still today) used duplex loads for accuracy and reduced bore fouling. Mainly in BP cartridge guns, but also in cap 'n ball. This practice can be EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, blowing up your gun or worse and I wouldn't reccomend it, but it has been done with varying degrees of success for more than a century and loading information is out there in older publications.
