Re: Correct method for measuring muzzleloader charge
i know in the field its easier to measure by volume but powders vary , so guessing a different powders settled volume is just that , a guess
it pays to practice and compare
measure and tap as you would in the field bt pour it into your scales bowl and compare
then you know how much to adjust with a bit more accuracy
and you know for your powder you shoot
measure and compare 5 times and avg that is a pretty good start then a line on your measure and you'll know what each load really is ..
me a remake a charge with a cigarette paper i use as a wad and a ball in one end of the parcel
tear offthe ball end and pour the measured powder down the bore
put ciggy paper cross wise over bore and push in and ram till home
i use a small flask for priming the cup and ready ..
