    Yes, buy it. But know that the blue model Ruger Old Army grip frames were made from aluminum until 1985 when they switched to a steel grip frame.

    That's great news! Whatever ammo you're using it sounds like the gun is A-Okay with it! That also helps to provide some feedback for others who might also be unsure about buying one. Enjoy!

    If all else fails and as a last resort, I would consider cutting the QLA part of the barrel off and having it re-crowned.

    arcticap replied to a thread RB patching in Muzzleloading.
    I think that patching the ball would help to produce more consistent velocity. It would be interesting to see how many bare ball shots out of 10 would be able to hit a pie plate compared to firing a patched round ball out of the same gun. And...

    No one can decide how much loading difficulty that you want to deal with. The example of the .56 Renegade smooth bore mention above - a .550 ball + .030 = .580 - shows that a lubed patch can be compressed by up to 2/3's of its original...

    Yes that's true, except there's 3 different nipple sockets to choose from, revolver, rifle and musket. Doing that would make it more difficult to switch sockets.

    Yes, a lot depends on the brand and bullet shape. I think that every bullet shape may have its own sweet spot, and not every bullet shape will have the same "sweet spot" measurement in the end. And then some guns just won't like some ammo at all...
