Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Today's mail call. Won this off GB last week. Armi San Marco brass framed 1858 Remmy. Noticeably lighter than my steel framed one. I know there isn't a historical example of a brass framed Remington...but it looks nice, was cheap, and seems to function pretty smooth. Hoping to shoot this weekend.
Well that's the idea. Was thinking 20gr sounded reasonable based on internet findings. Read a lot of people getting good mileage from their .36cal brass framed Colt replicas using 16-18gr.
Took it out this weekend. Put a few cylinders down range. Used 20gr of Black MZ. I don't have fffg. Shot really soft. Almost no recoil. Lead went mostly where I was aiming. I seated the balls a little hard, so that's something to not do next time (rammer left dents). Need to get some fffg and see how that goes. I have a few pounds of substitute because it's local and cheap. Lol. I have to drive a bit to get the real stuff. Super fun though.
