Just purchased a Pedersoli Gibbs .451 muzzle loader.

Looking for folks to talk to about:
bullet moulds
bullets
sizer dies
powder
etc.

Any Gibbs .451 owners/shooters in the Bay Area of California?

The rifle is a .45. I would use the mold pedersoli recommends which is US308-451. It's a little oversize at 0.4508 so a short starter will be required.
I wouldn't think a sizer would be necessary. Real black if you can get it. I would use FFFG.
