Mixing BP with Modern Powder, DON'T!

Despite what our resident screwball say's he did, mixing Bullseye and black powder for firing in a BP replica revolver is condemned by every source out there. I don't know if he's just ignorant, or want's to get people hurt.

It is a good thing nobody will listen to his nonsense, at least here. Hope other forums catch on before he gets someone hurt.

I never said you MIX it, dumbass. I said a grain of it, compressed under the main powder charge in the 9x21, removes most of the flash. It's not my fault that you can't even read.

compressed loads can't mix. but then all you ever knew about reloading, I knew at age 18. the only "mixing" was in a black powder gun, and if it can't handle 3 grs of bullseye in a .44, it would blow up with 40 grs of black powder, too. The real risk was popping a nipple back out of the cylinder. But the round ball has so little friction with the rifling that such is/was no risk at all.

" I had to woek up a load of 3 grains of Bullseye and 3 grains of blackpowder...: That the mixed load you quoted. If you didn't lie so much you might remember what you posted. 3 grains of black powder, quite a load for a .44 when the rest of us use 30.

you always end up with egg on your face, boyo. :-) it's never worked, but keep on trying. SOMEDAY, (maybe, if you live long enough) you'll catch me in a (very minor) error.

putting 3 grs of BP and 3 grs of bullseye in a .44 cap and ball is a LOT less likely to harm you than driving drunk, and you did that many times (without a doubt) as a teenager (or rode with somebody who was). I was 16, as I've already explained. BP caps of the day would not ignite smokeless powder and I couldn't replace the BP that I was running out of.

Another lie. You said you "worked up a load", right? That means you fired several loads to come up with 3 GR Bullseye and 3 Gr BP. 3 grains of Black Powder is 10% of the approved .44 load, so why bother with it? Your a liar.
