Re: 45-70 ball loads with black powder

I did not use any lube on the Hornady rounds balls at all. I think that may have been the problem. I did use a mild crimp on the loaded rounds which I don't do for 'standard' loads. BTW, this happened with both '2 ball and 3 ball loads'. I appreciate Mr. Miller's interest and knowledge. I will try lube next time.
