Re: 45-70 ball loads with black powder

Tom: Perfect function! I used my M84 that when shooting a 500 grain will group about one minute at 50 yards and about 5" high. I used the Wolf's formula but used a home made black powder lube instead of the suggested Alox. You can get a lot of lube between the balls. The three balls averaged a 16" group, more or less, to point of aim at 50 yards. Velocity averaged 980 f.p.s. +- about 8 f.p.s. If you want a copy of my notes supply me with an email address. Glad to help and it was a lot of fun. I still do not understand what went wrong with your loads.
