I shoot Traditional MLs, 50 Cal. and with Patch and ball. I don't even like In Lines.
I'm wondering about Patch Thickness. I've always thought that the thicker the patch, within reason, the more accurate the shots. But recently I heard otherwise.
Also, when I'm gonna shoot 25 to 30 shots at a session, I find that a tight patch is problematic, as in hard to load, although I can be done.
I've settled now on using a .015 or therabouts patch with a .490 ball and they seem to be accurate enough, and they are easier to load.
I found that .010 WASN'T accurate in my gun.
DO YOU THINK, that I might should go back to using patch thickness, of around .020 ??
This and anything else, you wanna share regarding patches, would be appreciated.
