BP newb questions.
I've inherited several Muzzleloaders and I would like to get a shopping list of supplies and gear that will be required to use them properly. Some kind of starter kit would be nice if there is such a thing.
The guns in question are:
Mowery Squirrel Rifle
Thompson Center Patriot
CVA Kentucky pistol
They are all .45 caliber percussion. I haven't shot muzzleloaders since about 1982, so my recall is a bit fuzzy.
I could also use a book that will give me some guidance for the basics. I remember the concepts, but it's the details that I can't seem to recall.
Is there a "standard size" .45 round ball or does it have a number of variables?
