Just as I did for cap n ball, I went to the best source of information I know, the cas-l post. Based on what I thought were ten basic questions, we have a primer for anyone starting out in Black Powder cartridge re-loading, or for the more experienced, a view on what his or her pards are doing. This information is based upon regular stage shooting, not long range side events.

As you can see, there is no single "right way" to do this. Everyone has their own methods and theories. What is best for you can only come from trial and error. Just make sure you have fun doing it!
