Correct! Wonder wads eliminate the need for grease in front of the bullet.
also +1 for going .44 i use .454 balls for my '58 remington and '60 colt (Lippietta) i get a nice ring shaved off the balls when i lever them in.

Just to be clear, the felt disc goes directly on top of the powder charge and then the ball is seated on top of the wad.

Ok, that's what I thought.

I've seen hickok45 uses felt wads.

Seeing that Hickok45 video reminds me that the SO and I picked her up an 1858 .44 Navy Colt Sheriff this weekend.


She's really big into the whole CW reenactment thing: has a suttler shop where they sell books, dresses up in period clothing, &c. &c. She's got a friend that's going to help her mix up some bp & Cream O' Wheat so she can be the armed widder what got her nice coat off'n a dead Yankee!

Have one of those....and man is it a nice shooting gun. The balance and feel are just spot on.

Collective wisdom sought-

My father is a recently retired mechanical/aeronautical engineer. last christmas we got him a balsa wood model kit of a Folker Tri plane, he built it in 3 days -

Thinking of a black powder rifle kit for this year (might take him a whole week )- Ideas for a "starter" kit, (complexity is likely not an issue, but ease of function, etc might be) Cap and ball I think he'd like more but I have no idea...

Unless you REALLY like the flash in your face, go cap/ball. KY rifle perhaps? LOTS of possibilities for checkering, color, etc in those stocks.
