    Having been asked about the load and its makeup enough times, I will list the recipe here for reference sake.

    I'm ignorant in the the ways of posting a link to some of the older threads regarding the load. If any of you are willing and able to do so, all the better. Some are a couple years old, maybe older. It seems some members are having difficulty finding them.

    Powder charge
    Nitro (hard) card
    Shotload
    Thin overshot card
    Full fiber cushion wad*

    *The cushion wad needs to be SATURATED (the wetter and heavier, the better) with oil. I like to use olive oil.

    The load seems to shine best when used in cylinder bored guns.

    Best of luck to all, Skychief.

    Sorry to hear about your emergency surgery Skychief. Getting old ain't for sissies.
    Posting a link from an older thread is a piece of cake. Load that old thread then go to your browser, this is the very top line of your computer screen, above the website, where it shows the address of the page you are looking at. Put your pointer on that line and right click, it will turn blue and a little square drops down giving you several choices. Left click on "Copy", now go to the page you want to add the link to and put your pointer where you want it to go, right click and a box appears with more choices, put your pointer on "Paste" and left click. It should be there.
