Well, after purchasing The Gun Digest Blackpowder Loading Manual (unable to find Lymans), and reading it a couple of times I see that there are many choices to be made; one smokepole isn't going to cut it !
Before reading on the subject I thought perhaps I would be happy with getting a .54 mainly for BG and loading down for SG, plinking and targets. I think what I may do is get a .58 for BG and a .32 for the rest and to get started. These would be traditional rifles. From what I have read, projectiles seem to be fairly available though I intend to get into casting my own a little down the road anyhow.
Any thoughts or experiences, good or bad about these options ?
