    Re: best powder and round balls for 1851 navy

    I have been shooting pyrodex select in my revolvers lately. I cast RB and conicals using Lee molds. I shoot with wonder wads between the powder and bullet. I also use RB more than conicals as I can stretch my lead supply that way, and I think they are quicker to load as well. I have never chrony'd my loads. Don't own one actually. Leaves me more money for lead and powder .
