I don't mind the smell of real BP; but I think I'll pass on the Ballistol cologne.

I agree, Tyrel - but I do use Ballistol Moose Milk.  I just hate the smell.

I PREFER to use Hoppes #9 PLUS BP cleaner & lube, but it's harder to find & more expensive, at least the few places where I have found it.

I simply use it (Moose Milk) as a good cleaner/neutralizer (the water is the neutralizer) - I leave lubing to PROPER lubricants.  And yes, the Hoppes mixed with BP residue stinks as bad as Ballistol; HOWEVER, to ME ... Ballistol stinks as soon as you open the can - the Hoppes doesn't smell bad until it mixes with BP residue!

But your mileage may vary ...

This past weekend marked the SMVS's (the Scarlet Mask Vigilance Society - our local NCOWS club) first ever 2-day shoot & camping extravaganza ... but unfortunately, it was also our last shoot of the 2013 shooting season.  (Our range is smack-dab in the middle of some of Indiana's best hunting areas and we didn't want to chance shooting a hunter, so Nov. 'thru Feb. we load our Black Powder rounds for NEXT season.)

My main reason for mentioning this is that as usual, I shot BP in all my bullet launchers!  Nuthin' but the best!

Let's see; compressed 3f loads in .44WCF, .45 Colt, and 12 GA (brass shells).  Flintlock rifles in .36 and .50 caliber and a flintlock musket (Long Land Bess).

I think need to add my name to the list, count me in.

Yer in, Vern'.  Check out the Plainsman Society as well as those other gunpowder friendly boards such as NCOWS that you already patronize.

I need a bit more info on your shotgun brass case load.  Are you using compressed FFFg in that as well? You might consider FFg.

Sir Charles,

My shotgun load is not compressed, should have mentioned that in my post.  The load is 55 grains of 3f toppedby a card wad, followed by a Circle Fly lubed fiber wad.  I use the same dipper to measure the shot and top off the shot with annother card wad.  All is sealed with waterglass.

I use 3f because that is what I use in my flintlocks, this way I only have to keep one grade on hand.  I prime my flinters with 3f as well.

The Plainsman Society looks good, I just may have to pickup a pair of 1860's and give it a go.

With your permission, Lords. I should like to start a coven(is that the proper term?) of the order up here in the frozen northern territory of Alberta, Canada.

Cheers!
A wise person once said ...

You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.
So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't.

I should think that Chapter would be more appropriate, but then I am rather new to the Order.

Here is the applicable clause from the Covenant;

"Members of any rank may be "at Large".  This does not depend on the length of theyr gonne belt, but indicates that they practise the BLACK ART or the BLACK MYSTERIE as individual champions.  Alternatively, members may arrange themselves as a HOUSE, or a COMPANY.  A HOUSE implies a geographical entity, while a COMPANY may be devoted to a particular form of the BLACK ART."

Come to think about it, CHAPTER might be a better term than "House". Do we have to debate an amendment, or can I simply change it as I composed the whole thing with editorial assistance from my Sun&Air.  Anyone have any other thoughts?

Sir Chas., I like "Chapter" better than "Coven."  Altho' there is plenty of mystery surrounding the TRUE gunpowder and sometimes those of us who USE it, "Coven" sounds more foreboding and perhaps "witchy," than "Chapter.

To our pal "Paladin UK," thanks for re-affirming my sootiness status!

Brothers, I confess that I have back-slid a whole lot since I bought these Nitro converted cylinders for my ROA's.

This was in a vain attempt to speed up and get competitive.

HAH!!!

May as well have stayed with the Holy Black and confused the markers!

If I can find a buyer soon for these cyl's then 'I will be back!'  (Oops, wrong film!)
