Thanks for the write up! I sent you a pm regarding the round ball size issue recently. Did you get it?

Very nice write up...However, I prefer Pyrodex RS Select over regular Pyrodex and on your cleaning, I heavily suggest not doing the final bore and exterior metal wipe with any lubricate made of a petroleum origin; as it will react with black powder or BP substitutes and give you corrosion. I use T/C Bore Butter...No rust problems.

Actually, beeswax...The reason the old time muzzleloaders did not deal with a lot of rust was their use of lubricants like beeswax and whale oil.

30+ years of using the stuff on the bore and exposed metal after the light soupy scrub...NO RUST.

zero beeswax lol, its chap stick.

If it works, fine, not for me! Its a terrible product and has a long history of it being poor.

This was the LAST time I ever used bore butter/wonder lube.

Sooo... the best powder is the one you've used for 18 years so it's the best? O-key-dokey.

It's the internet. Don't let it get to you.
You're never right and frankly it doesn't matter. Do what works for you, others will figure it out on their own.
