Man I sure do appreciate all the advice, you guys are a TON of help. I am gonna go with the .570 and I will get some .010 and .012 patches I already have some .015. I think I'm gonna start at 70 grs and work my way up. I plan to hunt with all three of my BP rifles next deer season. This carbine is going to be the brush gun and used on a few stands I have with short shots <70 yards. Then of course the GPR will do the longer shots, then the buckstalker (scoped) will do the even LONGER shots. Gosh I can't wait till deer season. And keep your hats on folks I even plan to film some hunts.

Possible reason for the musket cap could be that the original owner may have been using pellets instead of loose powder.
When the pellets first came out ( and prior to the big inline explosion) sidelock guys wanting to use the pellets had ignition trouble. Needed more ignition heat, therefore went to the musket cap.

Just a thought.

If I were shooting loose powder I'd go back to the #11.
