Also, the cylinder gap may be much smaller in the suppository cylinder and thus less fouling on the front.

What Fingers said. Compression and CRIMP give a more complete burn of the powder. If you take equal amounts of powder and the same weight bullet and shoot them both, one in cartridge form and one in a cap and ball revolver you will get more velocity from the cartridge revolver and a cleaner burn of the powder.

It was my understanding that the older-older gray 55 dispenser with an aluminum hopper could or was designed to handle actual blackpowder.  I am not just referring to the graduation markings but that it was truly sold as a dispenser for blackpowder loads.

Now, the one I have does have a clear plastic hopper that I do not know how to remove (don't believe it come off like an RCBS hopper).  But my question for some of you long time reloaders (I been doing it for only 29yrs)[here come the crazy idea] if I made an aluminum hopper cylinder that would fit inside the plastic one, would this negate the issue of static ignition?  What I understand to be the main no-no about using modern dispensers and BP.

Another quetion is - since blackpowder now comes in a black plastic containers rather than metal cans why can't the plastic hoppers be used, as is? Is it a special type of plastic?  Believe me  I have seen and fought with my share of static cling in several different manufactures hopper, sooo I know it is real but....

Thanks for any comments

OMG!, I love this thing.  Here's my Avenging Angle Thunderer (AAT) with Kenny Howell's R&D .45 Colt conversion cylinder, shown with my 4.75" 1872 Open Top:

Very crisp trigger, and feels AWESOME in the hand.  I have a feeling there will be stages where the 7.5" 1872 (still in Californication jail) will sit out in favor of the Avenging angle.  Wedge is perfect.  can be removed and installed with finger pressure.

When I mentioned this to Pettifogger, he said he hadn't seen it.  Said he doesn't check this forum.   He may see it here eventually but if you post this in the Gunsmithing forum I'm sure he will see it.  He is retired as far as gunsmithing so he won't be able to fix yours but can very likely offer you ideas as to what may need to be done.

If you do need to send it off, my highest recommendation would be Lassiter.  I found this contact info from 2014, but I think it is still current:
Tom's Single Action Shop New Lebanon OH Tom Wildenauer

I got my Lightning back from midwest gunworks and they broke it.... but swore they shot an entire box of rounds through it. Thanks for the information about TOM and  Toms single action . Really nice guy and i spoke with him at length about lightning rifles....sent it off to him a few weeks ago.

I suspect it has something to do with a solid primer instead of a nipple that allows gasses to be expelled out the back of the cylinder; and the more complete burning of powder due to the crimped bullet requiring more energy to override the crimp vs amount of energy required by a swaged ball.

But;  I'm no ballistician nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night

All it takes is a hat!?!

He wears fedoras, too - does that make him a Zoot Shooter - or just a guy who wears hats?

Scouts Out!

Likely because the load's encapsulated, just like a brass cartridge case, and the entire round is carried down the bore before fully disintegrating.

Scouts Out!
