Next challenge... Casting the bullets...
Jector- When I had my Gew 1871, I used 300 gr .430" cast lead bullets (often labeled as 444 Marlin bullets) and paper patched them with two turns of linen paper (the appropriate .439" bullets were hard to find). I loaded them over 60 gr of FFg. They worked very well.
