my first muzzleloader

was a 68 cal . I knew nothing about muzzle loading but I got The shooters bible of muzzleloading It was 1976 I had 3 beautiful molds and I was silly enough in my youth to give them away. Soon I might be the owner of a 68 Cal musket clone Rifle not carbine. If this happens I am going to need a hollow base bullet mold . Just seeing if any are available here first. Maybe even borrow one to cast a pile of bullets .I don't see myself shooting it much but taking one off the bucket list. uncowboy@comcast dotnet Thanks. J.Michael

I lied it was a 58 Cal. I now own it and need a hollow base maxi mold.

None of those either

I have a 1842 Harper Ferry, nominal .69 but it is a smoothbore so no minies. Wadded, bare naked .678 lead or 5/8" steel balls in 16 ga. shotcups. #5 for squirrels.

I did get the Musket Tal possession Sat afternoon. Now lets focus on Putting an arrow through the vitals of a whitetail in the AM.
