Okay then, three of each at a minimum. Now for the next question...

Nearly thirty years ago I shot black powder all the time. I owned a Navy Arms replica of the Remington revolver. At the time I purchased these nifty little fitted round dense "patches" that went between the powder and the ball. No grease required.

Does someone still make patches like that? It made loading quick and clean.

What would be the correct powder charge for a .36? In my Pennsylvania long rifle (.50) I usually find that fifty grains of powder keeps a good group at 100 yards or more.

I'm off to a gun show in the morning. Time to do some shopping.
