going to get my cap and ball
Do you have any supplies yet? Pyrodex P makes a good substitute. Where are you picking the gun up at? You might want to just get a starter kit and then work from there. There is a long list of items needed: round balls, powder, #11 caps, bore butter, nipple pick/wrench, powder measure. I like to shoot 25-30 grains Pyrodex in my .44 (Pietta 1860 Army). Powder flask, tackle box to hold all the stuff in. Have fun. Show Pictures.
