This book is the absolute must-have loading reference for the active shooter using muzzleloader or replica cartridge guns. Learn all about blackpowder and its use. Author Fadala expertly guides both the novice and the veteran charcoal-burner through today's arms, powders, accessories and uses. Greatly expanded, this new edition includes the major propellants currently available - Pyrodex and Triple Seven replica powders; GOEX, Swiss, Schuetzen and Elephant blackpowders. Muzzleloading hunters will find plenty of good load information for in-line rifles using the latest projectiles, including sabots. The traditional arms aren't neglected - rifles, muskets, shotguns, caplocks, revolvers and pistols are well represented. Cowboy action and rifle silhouette shooters will find plenty of cartridge data: tested loads for revolvers, lever-action rifles and long-range single-shot rifles.
