Re: Loading a Pirate Pistol
as long as the bullet has a snug fit WITH the proper patch, you are good.
some of the old spanish "kit" guns were actually ".44" caliber, using the .452 round ball meant for percussion revolvers. plus a .010-.020 patch.
If it is a ".45" caliber it uses a .430 round ball, in conjuction with a .010-.020 patch.
Why don't guns go off "accidentally" when people aren't around?
