Fun load to shoot from a Ruger Vaquero. Lots of smoke! Shoots about 1" low without adjustable sights. WARNING: Blackpowder grains are measured by VOLUME not WEIGHT. Use a manual Brass Measure and not a regular Powder Measure. Also be aware of static electricity around the reloading bench! Pyrodex "P" powder can be used as substitute.
