Pietta 1858 Remington
I just purchased this gun at a gunshow. It came with the .44 cal cap and ball cylinder as well as a 45 colt cartridge cylinder. Can anyone tell me what a good load of black powder and ball size should be? Also when using the 45 colt cartride cylinder is this meant for black powder loads or modern smokeless powder cowboy type loads? This gun appears like new and has the target sights on it. Do I need a greased wad between the powder and ball?
