    toot started a thread 777 question in Muzzleloading.
    can TRIPPLE 7 substitute black powder be used as a barrel charge and a priming pan charge in a flint lock, will it ignite/ fire, work? or do you have to use 10 grains of 4 FG under it in the primary barrel charge and prime with 4 FG priming powder?

    I've been using the SS media for several years now and it's the best thing I've ever used in my 50 years of loading. There is a slight learning curve with the SS but it's nothing that any loader can't do. The biggest thing is cleaning your pins when...

    Yes, that is the bleed hole. When cleaning or changing lubes you unscrew this screw and use a hair dryer or heat gun to melt the lube and this hole makes it easier to clean it all out. Every person has his way but if you have solid sticks then you...

    The first thing I would tell you is to change your powder charge, not to 1F as my friend Don suggested but to a half and half mix of 2F and 3F. My mix for my 12 ga loads is 1lb of each mixed by hand or a wooden spoon. The second step would be to do...
