Re: remington 1858 delivered
Search my posts on the internet: "So you want a cap and ball revolver?" and "Proper use of a cap and ball revolver," posted under my nom de net, Gatofeo.
They'll give you tons of info. They're long, so print them out for future reference.
I thought they were a sticky in this section, but I don't see them.
Anyway, I've been posting them for about 10 years, with occasional minor updates.
Others have good advice too, but these will give you "one stop shopping."
