I do want to remove the nipples before I shoot it to give it a thorough cleaning but that is good advice on the nipples and I think I will also remove them each time.
I was looking for a steel frame that I might do a cartridge conversion on but this one came along at a good price so I am going to shoot it for a while.
So Fingers, you use the wad between the powder and ball and nothing in the front of the ball?
Those who use wads, do you use them dry or with a lube/grease on them?
I have no experience with black powder substitutes and not that much with black powder. Do some of the substitutes work well? What are some recommendations?
