I use 45 grains of Tripple 7 FFFG powder with a felt wad and .457 round ball. The felt wad protects the other chambers in the cylinder from simultaneous discharge which eliminates the need to use Crisco or other lubricants such as Bore Butter. You have to seat the bullet as far down as possible in the cylinder so the bullet will clear as the cylinder passes the barrel. At 25 yards I can put six round balls in 1/2 dollar group, off hand. The pistol does not seem to loose any accuracy. I know this is likely the top limit of what you can load the pistol. But I am known for doing everything to the outer limits
