Trail Boss in Trapdoor

Posted by Jeff Padell on Saturday, 4 January 2014, at 9:26 p.m.

I have been using Trail Boss with either a 300 grain or 405 grain bullet in my Pedrosoli Trapdoor Carbine reproduction with good results. Very light shooting and at 50 yards acceptable accuracy, a lot softer than black powder loads I bought.

The question is would TB be safe in a original 1873 Trapdoor rifle that I just bought and am cleaning up?

My local gunsmith who does Cowboy Shooting with me and owns several repro Sharps Carbines and a trapdoor says it would be.
