Re: Rifle that will not fire ????
I think that the problem has been stated above, IF side lock style them the sticks will not work at all no matter what cap you use. IF inline then I would put a new nippl on it but from what I am reading, am suspecting a side hammer thus the sticks will not work as Old Semperfi has stated. I would get some loose pyrodex or black powder. Rule of themb is 50 cal and below, FFF, 50 cal and above, FF and yes 50 cal will usee either.
