I've shot cast bullets in an 1873 Trapdoor rifle thru trial and error years ago and I am going to get back into shooting black powder cartridge rifles so I've started to do some researching before I purchase any rifles. This book identifies the molds that have worked for the author and from what I've learned, his information is sound and based on a long history of firing BPCR loads for competition and hunting. Good information, the book isn't long enough for an in depth discussion on each mold and the processes, but it certainly gives more than enough to get started and will be a valuable reference to keep handy on the loading bench.
Covers the basics very well. Give insight to the history and development of BP loading. Overall, A good read for those who are just getting into BP in single shot rifles. Be aware that shooting BP can become an active addicition.
More a collection of the author's thought than an in-depth exploration of the subject. I still learned a few things.
