What projectile did you find the most favorable and what charge did you use so I can have a basis to start
I'm glad you said, start as you have to come up with the shot-string as your M/L will tell you what it likes. ....

Powder;
90-95 gns. of loose 777
Projectile;
.44, 230-240 grns pistol lead bullet.
Sabot;
Honady 50/.44 (Important)
Musket Cap;
CCI, for now

Quote:
Why did you switch back to musket caps?
Less force, stronger nipple, easier to work with. What they call the 209 adapter or nipple, once broke on me at the range and I have never broken a musket of #11 nipple. ....

Be Safe !!!
