Swiss 1-1/2F

(1/3) > >>

DMacKay:
With the limited to unavailability of 2f has anyone used 1-1/2F?  Iím shooting a 58 cal and local shop has 6 lbs of 1-1/2f in stock which Iím thinking I may go buy right now.

Penske:
Mainly used for black powder cartridge guns. You may need to adjust your charge up a bit from your regular 2F load.
Regards,
Peter

snapper:
I used 1.5 swiss in my long range ML for quite a few years.  Had ignition problems with it.   Keep in mind that these rifles have a very small flash hole in the nipple and the flash channel in the breech is not as large as some rifles.
