Default Re: .58 Caliber, Zouave ML Rifle, Range Report

I cast some more RB with the primitive mold, (I will post a thread with pics), and they end up at ~0.754, - 0.005". If I drop one in the barrels it 'floats' to the breech. Both barrels are 0.764" at the muzzle. 0.690" seems a bit 'small' to me, but I have read about people shooting 0.500" RB from a .58 cal barrel without "problem". Anyway, I've figured out a way to make the primitive mold throw VERY consistently weighted RB so I'll stick with it for a bit anyway. Thanks for the links.
