RichG I just got home the mould I thought was a 526 which is written on the box is really 520.
Sorry for the holdup!  Thanks Lorne

Hey I don't want to hijack the thread but would a .520 work with a Thompson .54 cal? I've got a Thompson Caplock, CVA Flintlock, and Traditions Smoothbore Blunderbuss all in .54 cal

Would I lose a lot of accuracy with a .520? If not I'm possibly interested.

Some of my friends have 54s and use thick (0.020” or thicker!) patches with the 0.520” roundballs and they love the accuracy, ease of loading and that they don’t need to swab the bore duringnan extended shooting session.

I bought some 520s to use in my Hall flintlock breechloader (military issued 0.525”) so I might just try them in my 54 w/ thick patches. I don’t shoot that 54 much, only used for 1 Fall hunting season.

All of my muzzleloaders will shoot into a ragged ~1/2" hole ALL DAY LONG ... it's just the 2nd or 3rd or other shots that tend to open up my groups ... !
