The debate continues.
I shoot a .36 New Police. Have shot it for years. Load powder, wad, ball. No grease. No chain fires yet.
I know that Cfs happen. I understand the problem at the percussion cap end. What's the mechanism at the open cylinder end? Seems to me that if I load a ball that shaves a ring of lead, I have pretty well sealed the cylinder. Putting a wad between the ball and powder just adds to the seal. Or not?
