just picked up a nice 1851 navy colt c.v.a. 44cal.
seems to fire just fine with 3f pyrodex at 24 grains..but after lookin thru my old blk.powder mag. it seems to be a light load??
also the wedge on the barrle doesent seem to go all the way thru the barrle--it is flush with the other side-seems tight enough..
just thought it should go farther thru..not sure on the caps--been using #11s-tried 10s but they sit kinda high-but tight..
11s sit lower but need to be pressed in on the sides some what..any one have any experance with this make of gun?
