    Iíve been shooting BP in my .45-70 lever gun for a few months now. Both grease lubed and paper patched. I have always loaded grease cookies, because I didnít want to swab between shots. Iíve been having good luck and a lot of fun. However, as we all...

    First to answer RFD’s question of what I am trying to accomplish with these PP boolits. Mostly target shooting and some plinking. I enjoy reloading as much as shooting and it is interesting to figure out how to make this round work in one of the...
