new in the black powder world
just got a pietta model 1858 new army buffalo pistol . have not shot it yet i cant wait any one got any info or tips on this gun it has a brass frame if that helps ? thank you .
Those are some cool looking revolvers! I have the regular remington NMA 1858 replica & enjoy shooting it very much. Only problem i had was figuring out the best size & company caps to use; apparently, the numbering/sizing system doesn't exactly line up across different manufacturers. I use the pre-gooped wonder wads under my lead/over the powder.
With the brass frame, i bleve you want to shoot lighter powder loads for long frame life.
Keep your loads in the 20's not 30's ! Grains that is .
It will take .454 round Ball . It will take number 10 caps , or pinch your 11's to keep um snug on the nipples .
I use grease over my balls not wads . You can use wads if you want .
Be safe , have fun , and pictures are mandatory , or it didn't happen ! :D
