        All I know is that you should clean the oil from the breech before loading the gun.......

            Petroleum products and 'real' black powder reside form into an asphalt like substance that is a bear to remove. I don't know anything about the modern ML"s or I'd help out.

              I have an 1860 Colt Army Revolver, but I can't shoot it because I refuse to apply for a pistol license in this state, for various reasons.

              I can still find a use for my thumb, even though it no longer has a hole to finger.

                Stainless Ruger Old Army.45 that I bought back in 1986. Remember that I could load it very hot. Had a better kick than a .44mag. Haven't shot it in some years since as I said in another thread, I hate cleaning firearms and old black powder needs to be cleaned quickly.

                  Been shooting a smoke pole for years, lots of fun. For starters I would get a CVA 50 cal. with shotgun primer ignition. Get triple 7 powder and you can clean it with warm soapy water. Get power belt bullets, you can get quite a few shots with them before they get hard to load due to fouling. Skip the sabots for now, powerbelts are much cleaner but disintegrate in a deer leaving a lousy blood trail. Move to the sabots with good bullets if your going to hunt with it.

                    I am looking into making my own black powder. Then looking into calibers and fierarms taht will take it well in a shtf mode.
                    The O/U shotguns are teh fist suspects.

                          there are many videos on this and it's legal to make but all you can have is fifty pounds with out a atf explosive licence. There's a lot to it but if you follow the steps of a safe procedure you'll be fine

                            Traditions makes kits that are either pistols or even a Kentucky long rifle in a cap lock instead of flintlock which would a good starter gun because you can find pyrodex everywhere just about

                              A inline is a good starter one like hunter said above. It's definitely a different animal and it truly makes you appreciate the shot because all you have is one at times lol
