New Nipple = Accuracy Check

Post by FrontierGander » Thu Jun 01, 2017 4:59 pm

Got a couple new Treso nipples in today for my Traditions St.Louis Hawken.

I loaded up my current hunting load of 70gr Pyrodex P, .020" patch, .490" round ball.

Before loading, I popped 2 caps and they sounded real dull, not the typical sharp loud crack that I usually hear. I could hear a muffled boop, come out of the muzzle when the cap went off.

But anyway, the nipple worked flawless with Pyrodex. Cap fit is still a little loose so pinching the cap is a must. I'll cut some rubber hose and slip that over the nipple to hold it in place while hunting.

My first shot is to the right. After seeing that I just about busted my twisted up gut the doctor found yesterday
Open sights, traditional muzzleloader and patched round ball. HELL YES!
