OK, here's the skinny on wheel weights. The stick on weights made for aluminum wheels are 98% pure lead. They work fine in my .58 three band Enfield. Clip on weights are a little too hard for minies but are great in crtridge guns. I use 70 grs. of Pyrodex with a Lyman traditional style minie and I also use a Lee Improved minie. I prefer the Lyman but the Lee is every bit as good. I can tear hell out of a five gallon bucket at 300 yds. with either one. I lube in the grooves instead of the base with a beeswax/crisco mix. I have no problem loading due to fouling whether it's the first shot or the 50th.
