Malgus, do you know offhand if you can use BP in plastic shotgun hulls or does it burn too hot for them?   I’ve got a couple hundred that I cycle through for fun stuff like target loads or low recoil slugs that I cast.  I still need the buckshot mold.

And what do you think about black powder pistols like the 1860 Army as a “way down the road” firearm as opposed to an old .38 or a Colt .45?
