I'll try that, too, of course.  I've just started playing with it, so it will take a bit of time to figure everything out.

Both guys I know shooting these are using .535" round balls, with .017" or thicker patching, on top of some significant powder charges.  Both guys are using oiled patches; one is using neatsfoot oil, not sure what the other is using.

I have an old Lee .527 mold that I bought in hopes it will work with my Uberti Santa Fe Hawken .53 caliber rifle. I have not yet cast any but maybe I should try them in both my Uberti and my Pedersoli. Track of The Wolf sells both .520 and .526 balls and they both work well in my Uberti.

Niederlander, post pictures of your shooting trip if you can.  I'd love to see the rifle.
