Maybe I didn't do it right, but I didn't see any left over black powder on the snow. I went from 20grs to 25, 28, 30, and then 32grs. I was using a wafer of beeswax/paraffin between the powder and ball so the last charge had to be beat in with a hammer. I was also quit pleased with how clean everything was. Bore, cylinder, axle, and frame all had almost nothing to clean off. It sure beats the way I use to shoot 40 years ago with the lube on top of the ball getting splattered all over. The weather is warming up so the snow is gonna disappear and if I want to try this again I'm gonna have to hurry.
