This thread is about a year old, but I missed it on the first go-round.

However, am I correct that it was stated he was using "round ball" in a Knight Wolverine? The rate of twist is awfully fast for best results with round ball- conicals such as Maxi-balls or saboted bullets would likely shoot better.

From what I've experienced, the faster twist tears at the patch pretty good, and accuracy isn't good at all. It's likely a smoldering thread could have still been in there- especially if the patch wasn't lubed or lubed correctly, or it was some other material besides cotton ticking.

I'd like to know more about the projectile and patch part of the equation.
