    I thought I would mention it. Just in case.




    Ah... yes... probably a good idea not to eh?

    Yup, it was opposite MY earlier comment, and served to reinforce it.

    Funny you should mention that as I was recently involved in a minor kerfuffle on another forum that lead to me contacting Hodgdon themselves to find out about loading it as a BP substitute in ML pistols,

    Have a look at the email I got sent back to update that very good link: https://www.full-bore.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=31288
    I'm not terribly happy about you going on other forums to be honest.

    Even stranger is that I appear to have something approximating a talent for it, managing a score of 101/120 on a PL7 at 25 yards with a club Rogers and Spencer.

    I am entering my first competition this month and am in the process of putting together a variation form for this and one or two other bits.

    A chap at the club has a Euroarms Rogers and Spencer in good nick that he wants 150 quid for, seems a no-brainer?

    Any tips, observations or things to be aware of chaps?
    I was a dedicated Gallery Rifle shooter till I tried BP revolver at my club some months ago, and I too are now hooked, quite content to shoot either the clubs R&S, Ruger O/A or Pietta .36 1858 so not thinking of a variation just yet.

    Thank you for sticking to the point of the OP coburn, my so called friends notwithstanding!

    i did not think the attraction is the pistol part per se, it's the "naughty schoolboy" feeling of creating huge bangs and clouds of smoke as the .22 prone boys peevishly look on that does it for me.
