Re: Traditional Flinter?
I second the Lyman Great Plains suggestion. The one I have has shot 2" groups at 100 yards using the iron sights it came with. This rifle will have the slow twist intended for round ball; 1-60".
The load my rifle prefers is a .495" Hornady swaged ball over 85grs. (volume) of FFg Goex using an .018" patch lubed with mink oil.
