Re: Took my 1884 out for the first time

Question for Ernie, what load of Pyrodex do you use. I have been using Goex 2F and 5744 with the 405 gr lead bullets. I think I have been using 60 to 65 gr of the BP and it compresses about 1/4 inch or so. They have been working well, but I have a pound of Pyrodex RS that I would like to use but am not sure exactly what load to use. I have heard both pros and cons from different sources about Pyrodex, so I have waited to use it. I would appreciate your help. Thanks.
