For those of you that shoot bare ball how snug should the ball be as it goes down the barrel. I have a .56 caliber smoothie that a .562 ball can be seated on the powder with a ram rod but it is tight in the bore?
wasp's / paper hornets nest, is the best patching materiel the GOD, gave us. talk about natural!!!I have shot my 56 with a wad over powder (wool, or wasp nest) a .535 ball, and wasp nest over the top. Was getting 4-5in groups off hand at 50yds. Patched was better. I tried the. 562 in mine as well and it didn't shoot as good, and I don't know if I want to try and reload without wiping the bore between shots.
