Both GOEX and Swiss are original recipe as are all other modern made black powders. My feeling is, use BP, the substitutes are okay but don't expect them to have the shelf life of real BP.Not a what's best but "preferred"Black Powder for C & B revolvers like my 1860 Army or '58 Remington ?
Not Pyrodex I would imagine, but GOEX or Swiss or possibly Original...?
Thank you !
30 grains of 3Fg is considered by many to be a very stout load. Try 20-25. It may shoot just as well.
For caps, I try to use ones that fit nice and snug on the nipple. You cannot go wrong using the Treso/AMPCO nipples. A lighter load may also help keep the caps from coming off and jamming the works.
Welcome to the world of blackpowder shooting. It is, IMHO, the most refined of shooting sports, because it requires that you understand what you're doing, rather than just stuffing rounds into a gun and blasting away.
If you have never fired a flintlock rifle, you should try it. Now THAT is a lot of fun.
