I have a Pietta .36 cal revolver, sometimes called the sheriffs model.
At the moment accuracy leaves something to be desired, the ball gets a nice ring shaved off as it is loaded
What are other people using for loads?

21gns of FFFG black powder, with a .375 ball, Remington #10 caps. No grease, no wads, no filler. Use the same load in two different revolvers, an 1851 Navy by Uberti and a 1862 Police 4", also by Uberti.

In 1978 I was told by my grand dad that the secret to rifle accuracy is, a quality bullet, fired down a quality barrel..... How has that changed?

Guns dont kill people. Dads with pretty Daughters do...!
