Re: Winchester 73 44-40 Black Powder shooting (video)

A question for you, When you said
Swiss #4 black powder
were you referring to 4F powder, or something else.
I've not heard of of black powder referred to in this way before.

If this is over the Model 597 I see little if any similarity to Ruger's 10-22. Sounds like Remington has a product that people are buying and Ruger can't stand the competition.
