I went out again this weekend, and it was shooting some pretty good groups with the factory .005 patches and 490 round balls. I was shooting 50 grains of pyrodex RS backed by a 209 primer. This was at about 25 or 30 yards. The nice thing about the thinner patches is that I can thumb seat them and don't need my starter. However, I don't think the seal is all that great. I don't know, though, as I can't seem to find my patches. I think the wind was getting them, and as I wasn't at a formal range, there isn't a great deal of clear ground to find them. With a little bigger patch, do you think I could drive the ball a little harder, or is that more of a function of twist rate than patch thickness?
