    Ah, but waht was so nice about 577 Snider was that finishing with half-a-dozen rounds of Unique blew away every trace of fouling from the Pyrodex I was using for the other 50 rounds...

    Or maybe it was the polenta filling I was using did that?

    just had a look further back in my notes, I did load some with 11.5grns unique for 1400 fps, settled on the 16grn load as really no cost implication and I intend to try it more at 100/200 when we can go to the range again, very soft shooting load with almost no recoil, I have a 200 grn mould which I was planning to try in my 1889 but with the current situation I suspect my FEO would be loath to let me add it to my FAC so that will wait, may try them in the K31 but they will protrude a ways into the case .

    6.5gn Unique is my go to load for this combination bits and nice pleasant indoor shooting.

    Do you really need more poke? Save powder and the paper target will be just as holed.
    Good deals with: Muskett, Dreben, roger.kerry, TALL, Helidave1, Chelseablue, Leeroy7031, Mousemann, pnuk, Practical, NEWFI, HOOGS, Webb22, lazybones1416 and deanw5262 among others. Thanks Guys.
