BTDT. You get better over time ('cept for poor ol' NOZ).
Ever done the opposite: putting way too much powder in the chamber and can't even get close to seating the ball? Besides whittling the ball with a pocket knife, the Colt's are cool 'cause you can knock the gun apart rotate the bulging chamber in line with the barrel at full cock then re-attach the barrel, cap, & shoot it out. I still live by the adage that you can't overload a cap & ball revolver. So far, so good (still got all my fingers, eyes and toes).
With over 15 perCUSSIN' revolvers, I've been called the Imelda Marcos of cap & ball.
