    conical

    this one i did try and got quite good results with it at 25m
    put the conical in back to front, it works like a wad cutter,
    lovely neat holes
    i still ended up back with round ball, but it was different,
    have fun what ever you try,

    My ROA is the 7.5" stainless version, it shoots best with stout loads and .457 ball. I don't have a BP licence, so use 777 instead. A .44 Special case full works for me, makes a lot of smoke though.

    Not having a .44 Sp case handy, can you measure that load in WEIGHT, please? Remembering, all the time, that T7 does NOT like to be compressed.
    Several guns and trains.

    A charge of 13grns (weighed) of Hodgdon 777 with a lubricated wad and a .457 swaged rather than a cast ball also works for me. I find the Old Army a bit too heavy to shoot with a one hand precision stance, but do quite well with a two handed hold. Even though this might be considered a light load, it provides enough recoil and noise while still being comfortable to shoot.
