PostSubject: New Nipple = Accuracy Check   June 1st 2017, 3:57 pm

Got a couple new Treso nipples in today for my Traditions St.Louis Hawken. The distance I was shooting from was 100 yards.

I loaded up my current hunting load of 70gr Pyrodex P, .020" patch, .490" round ball.

Before loading, I popped 2 caps and they sounded real dull, not the typical sharp loud crack that I usually hear. I could hear a muffled boop, come out of the muzzle when the cap went off.

But anyway, the nipple worked flawless with Pyrodex. Cap fit is still a little loose so pinching the cap is a must. I'll cut some rubber hose and slip that over the nipple to hold it in place while hunting.

My first shot is to the right. After seeing that I just about busted my twisted up gut the doctor found yesterday
Open sights, traditional muzzleloader and patched round ball. HELL YES!

I used those nipples on the Colt 1960's I used in CAS shooting. I used the Rem #10 caps. They fit perfect.
