    Gunlaker replied to a thread Who knows? in Black Powder Cartridge
    I don't have one of those Uberti rifles, but I have a lot of other BPCR type rifles. I believe that the original Trapdoor rifles had a 1:22 twist and they stabilized the original 500gr bullet, so I wouldn't be afraid of a heavier bullet than a...

    I have used both Goex Fg and Swiss Fg. The Goex Fg seems to have big differences between lots. I've had one lot give very good results, and the next was unimpressive. This thread shows a 12 shot group from my CPA with plain Goex Fg at 223...

    RFD, you can use one of Cornell's .45 Colt wad cutters to get that diameter, or thereabouts. I have cutters that do 0.450", 0.454" or so, and 0.459" or so. My rifles ( with Dan Theodore's 0.474" chamber mouth diameter ) work best with the bigger...

    I bought a couple of reams of paper from BACO a number of years ago. It was made by Esleeck which made the paper in both 25% and 100% cotton. Both work just fine. I wouldn't worry about it much. I use a lot of Seth Cole paper and it's 25% if I...

    I use bullets from 0.443" to 0.446" depending on bore diameter and paper thickness. Chris.
