Well, they can be discussed in Rifle, here at C&R, or in the Black Powder forum if they are BP guns.

Rifle gets more traffic than here, but answers to specific queries about old guns/cartridges tend to be a little more refined in this forum.

If you will use black powder, the Shiloh board is a world of information.
