I shot my Pedersoli Harpers Ferry yesterday using various charges behind a .570 round ball and .010 patch. I hang my targets on an old piece of 1/4" plywood, I found that when shooting from 25yds with anything less than 40gr of 3f goex the ball was unable to fully penetrate the plywood. I get the impression this pistol would really prefer 50-60gr of 3f especially at 25-50yd ranges but Pedersoli offers very little load data. Can this pistol safely handle 60gr 3f charges?
