What About Trail Boss

I saw my containeer of "Trail Boss" and thought it should perform well in this revolver. Maybe it is getting away from the traditional way to load for a cap and ball with all the smoke and other things but there may be times that is what I would want.

I have heard that you never compress Trail Boss so I guess not use any filler. Probably insert the ball a consistant level in the cylinder.

I searched the IMR site and they did not have any info for this powder as a black powder substitute for cap and ball.

My new CVA powder flask throws a consistant 7 grains by weight, I haven't modified it yet as I mentioned plan to do in my latest post.

Anyone with any experience with this and wish to share please chime in.
