I tried nitrating paper for cartridges using stump remover which was mostly potassium nitrate but the brand I got contained some kind of waxy scum that was almost impossible to remove and left the paper contaminated so much that glue would not stick. I used the rest of the stump remover as fertilizer and went another route.

I had the gun, a Pedersoli percussion Sharps, modified by Hahn Machine Works, and started using Hahn tubes and the paper cartridge problem was solved.
 
Perhaps not precisely period correct, but I have shot 30 rounds without cleaning or stopping to fiddle with the breech block and I prefer reliability to period correct any day.

No need to throw hundreds of dollars at your rifle to turn it into a race gun. The top shooters are always going to be faster.

It all depends on what you want to do. If you never plan to do any competitive shooting the stock rifle will do the job just fine.  If, on the other hand, you do want to be a competitive shooter in SAS matches some attention should be shown to the guns and practice sessions. It all depends on what you want out of the experience.

My goal is to win my category which is Frontiersman each time I go to a match whether it be local, state, or regional. That can't be done with "out of the box" guns.

That rifle appears in excellent condition. Obviously it shoots well.

Very nice looking Winchester. Has that rifle been reblued? It looks absolutely beautiful. I have sent you a pm regarding oversized bores in old rifles as I did not want to hijack this thread.

Actually, they did supply him with a Quickloader.

They found it just about as useful as we did...

I bought a number of them, 'and' nice condition Spencers when I was stationed in Europe - at that time, the dollar was strong, and stuff still came out of the woodwork.
