When you wiped the bore each shot you may of removed lubricant! A coating of lubricant for the whole length of barrel is crucial, much like a 22lr! So therefore you would/could get the same results!

Re: More on 44-40 exploring reloading

Lubricant is critical with black powder in my opinion.
I don't like large groove bullets for lube.
If the lube falls away or part falls away it will help destabilise the bullet.

One possible way to help diagnose a lubricant issue is to try a grease cookie!

Re: More on 44-40 exploring reloading

For pure black I would crush as much in as humanly possible!
Also, if I saw no wet star at the muzzle I would thin my lube more with olive oil or suchlike until I did.

Other than that I have nothing to suggest having little experience with 44/40.

Great read though. Thanks.
