I will use commercial FFF black powder and planned on tying the loading lever up with a leather strap for Ďauthenticityí. I have a bucket of wheel weights and a very large (50 lbs or so) ingot of an unknown alloy and hardness. I get wheel weights from a local shop. I donít want to get into casting modern high performance handgun bullets but black powder and buckshot arenít too particular. Iíd like to use heavier conical I guess but seating them straight was on my mind. If round ball seals well and flies straight I guess that will be fine.
