Just picked up my first muzzleloader, a CVA Bobcat. I have read a lot of load data, but I was hoping for a starting place for what I have. I have the local gun shop getting me some Pyrodex RS, I just don't have the funds right now to buy a whole case of BP. I have a box of Hornady RB's and I will probably just start with some traditions lubed patches they have at the LGS.
I am pretty excited about my Bobcat, I first thought I wanted an inline rifle so it would be "easy" to use. But after I found the Bobcat at a cheap price, got it home and started cleaning it, I think a sidelock is all I want. I think a pistol will be next, and I am building a powder horn right now.
The powder horn thread is in special projects if you guys want to give some advice on it.
Kinda funny, while everyone else in the world is trying to buy AR's I am going the other direction!
OH, the Bobcat is a 1 in 48 twist carbine style if that would help.
