    I had a 58 rem. replica when a teen , I used all kinds of lube over the balls , fired it without to and that is the only times I experienced chain fires , I have used number 10 caps and squeezed down and pinched them since I wanted no misfires , I am of the opinion try both methods for yourself and see which you prefer or which one you have or do not have chain fires with.

    Have only one rem. replica now a 36 caliber I bought from a gunshop and have never shot , I prefer my colt replicas , and use a home made lube . There have been may threads on this and never seen a agreement yet , so do it how you like to.

    I really thank all who replied. At the present my thoughts run to using some kind of home made wad, probably cut with a 45 colt case. I have several sheets of 1/16" beeswax that I may try.

    Oklahoma. Quite possibly the reddest state in the U.S.A. 77 counties, 2 elections, and not a single one went for B.O. Uh make that 3 elections, we didn't care much for Hillary either.

    When I was young, my father had an original Remington .44. I fired it quite a bit without grease. I also experienced chain fire a couple times. Very impressive. I always wondered why it only fired five cylinders and never the bottom sixth.

    (That gun's mine now along with a couple .36s and a .31)
