    Don, I find myself quite in agreement with you. First, I don't necessarily hold with the view that there were "paper patch" and "greaser" chambers per se in the original Sharps and Remington big bore rifles. There were differences in chambers but I...

    Happy to share 35 Krag data. But I also think starting 5% below starting loads for the 35 Whelan is going to be a good route.
