Hey everyone, I want to run this buy you guys. I took my Fussil de chase for a walk this morning, we got 4 to 5 inches of fresh snow yesterday and i wanted to play, so anyway I walked back to my shooting area and took a couple of shots with my FDC. The load i was using was 60 gr of ffg, a nitro card, and two .015 red ticking patches lubed with olive oil and a .575 diam round ball. After I did my shooting i noticed the cardwads laying in the snow and they had separated like those biscuits that come in a tube. Then i found my patches and they were visibly burnt on the sides with some burn through spots on the sides of the ball imprint. My question is, is this from using a undersized ball, or a lube issue? The ball seems fairly tight when i load it. Thank you all for your advise.
