Shot my black powder revolver today. Made little pouches of black powder with 24 grains at home before i went. Used free burning cigarette papers and tore them a bit when i dropped em in. T :welcome: hen no wad, grease., then a .454 ball. Grease before the ball keeps everything lubed so i can shoot all day without cleaning. Shot about sixty rounds. Fun stuff!

Those hundreds of .223 cases you find at the range? They make neat little containers for premaesured loads of black powder. :D
