Did this video help you?

Survivalist 2012: Where did you get that reloading stand bud? I really like it! 

Wizard ZoSo: Well unlike some people it is good that you let others know that not everyone should follow your example of loading from a Flask. That is a very Responsible Act. Well Done

Treasure Pirate: Very nice video. Well spoken and fun to watch.

Steve Huff: Hey Joe! How the hell are you? As soon as you started talking I knew that was you! good to see you are still alive and kicking! I just got into black powder myself,

Appelcaster: Pardon my lack of black powder knowledge, but what is the corn meal for? Is that a substitute for powder or more a wad/insulator? I've watched lots of black powder videos an you're the only one I've seen do that. Please explain, if you'd be so kind to. Thanks

FotoandT: @OfficerNastyx Actually, I HAVE bought Goex at Gander Mountain in College Station Texas before. Bass Pro also carries it in some areas. Keep in mind that Black Powder can't be stored on a store shelf, they will have to go get it from an approved storage locker, ATF considers it an explosive and that's why most places won't carry it, too much paperwork. If you don't mind ordering it in 5lb quantities you can get it at PowderInc as well.

FotoandT: This cracks me up!! I ought to start selling autographs. Did you notice the ponytail not a shaved head? How about it's a Derby not a Beret? I'll still sign an autograph though:)

Gage Webster: @FotoandT. Ok thank you. i live in Michigan. southeast michigan. could i find it a gander mountain, or bass proshop?

FotoandT: @phill1488 Look closely please!!! Jamie wears a "Beret", I wear a Western Derby. Jamie is as bald as a cue ball and I have a pony tail!! Besides, my moustache is better than his.

FotoandT: A lot of folks don't like brass frame BP guns. As long as you load them properly they'll last pretty much forever. This particular one has several thousand rounds through it.

FotoandT: Do a search for Dixie Gun Works, they've got parts for just about anything and the Pietta is a common gun.

BrettsWorldpiano: I am 13 and the proud owner of one of these. I worked hard for that 200 dollars and love to actually be able to go and shoot my own gun. especially in california.

ethannelson1911: Are the sights fixed or adjustable

Gage Webster: PLEASE REPLY, i was wondering, where did you get that flask, and how did you get the 16 grain spout?

Dillon Lamotte: Was this gun manufactured in america or another country

FotoandT: Basically, I'm CHEAP!! I do use lubricated felt wads though but they go on top of the cornmeal. I do this when it's just too hot to use Crisco as a lubricant, kinda like is now in South Texas. The cornmeal simply is a way to get enough volume in the chamber to allow the ball to rest closer to the forcing cone of the barrel. On a gun like an 1860 Army I don't use any cornmeal at all, just a lubricated wad because the 22-30gr of powder is enough volume without filler.

FotoandT: Since a brass frame gun shouldn't be loaded with powder to its full capacity so as not to stretch the frame, the cornmeal is used as a filler to enable the ball to be closer to the forcing cone of the barrel. Also, more powder doesn't necessarily mean better accuracy. As to the flask, it's a replica probably purchased in east Texas somewhere.

ironman052992: is there any problem that could result from using the wad and gun lube? (the "starter kit" that mine came with has both). also, do you have any idea on what size the balls in the cabela's starter kit are? (this is the kit that came with my order).

John Marsee: holy hell...i didnt know Jamie Hyneman from "mythbusters" was tatted up

evilcowboy: I love these guns. I got the steel frame one and it is a sweet gun. I color filled the engraving on the sylinder if ya wanna check it out you can see it on my channel.

Joe Hunnicutt: There is no such thing as a Colt or Remington pattern gun made in the USA. Even Colts 2nd & 3rd Generation BP guns were only assembled in the USA with Italian parts. The ONLY BP revolver made in the USA is the Ruger Old Army which has been out of production for many years and now demands a premium price but it is not a historically accurate gun. This one is a Pietta but Uberti (Berreta) also makes them, both are very good quality but may take some "tuning" to smooth out.

ron hensley: why did u start useing corn meal instead of felt wads

anthony bargas: what size cap and balls do you think work best with this gun? also what powder works best?

mark3smle: First handgun I ever owned and just ordered another. I also appreciate you clarifying the myth that they did not reload this gun in combat.

7410ray: What is the corn meal for?? Where did you get the flask??

FotoandT: 20gr of either will be fine, I wouldn't go any more than that though. Pyrodex is a direct substitute for BP but you can't weigh it as it it's lighter than BP. All measurements in Pyrodex MUST be by volume not weight. Have at it and enjoy!!

Billy Krash: Awesome tattoos!

FotoandT: @OfficerNastyx I tend to find stuff like that in strange places. The flask came from a collector in Tomball Texas but it's only a reproduction. You can find both the spouts and flasks at good prices through TrackOfTheWolf's web site. The spouts don't necessarily throw what they're marked for in weight depending upon humidity and the type of powder but they're close enough for what we do.

30calhunter: that crisco makes the gun look alot less scary when you're staring down the barrel, lol

burntham113: Jamie! Whats going on man!

burntham113: You really could pass for him though. Or rather, he could pass for you lol. A little fake ink, a wig, some shades and a hat and you two could be twins. You even have similar mannerisms, but I digress. Awesome vid and awesome channel, subscribed!

FotoandT: @OfficerNastyx If I recall I usually am in the $100 range. You will need to pre-register with their web site BEFORE ordering, you only have to do that once. If you know somebody else who shoots BP you can split an order. Also look into your local gun club, they may order for their members and split the cost. Did you call Gander or Bass Pro to find out if they carry it in your area?

FotoandT: Fixed

Joe Hunnicutt: Every repro Italian Colt's pattern revolver I've ever shot has used .454 round balls. The caps are another matter. This one has aftermarket stainless nipples which like CCI #11 caps. A lot of folks swear by Remington caps but I can't find 'em. Cap to nipple fit is something that your gonna have to play with I'm afraid. Too small = no bang, they won't seat deep enough to go off. Too big can = chainfire. Try to avoid pinching oversize caps, a lot of folks do it but that doesn't mean won't bite you

ironman052992: i actually ordered this the other day as my first black powder gun. is the crisco really necessary? i'm just wondering because i've seen other videos of this same gun loaded and fired, almost always without anything other than the powder, lubed wad, and the ball. also, i'm being told that the maximum amount of powder this gun can handle is 25 grains. how well would this gun perform with 20 grains and a .451 ball, and is this combination recommended?

Jake Clouser: Your like the southern version of jamie from mythbusters....just sayin...great vid

phill1488: @FotoandT just saying from a glance u look like the guy , good vid btw

New2Kendo: I also just picked one of these up, got it NIB for $190 shipped to my door from fingerhut of all places, usually $259 but I had a cupon for 30% off so I couldn't pass it up. This is my first BP revolver, and I am glad to hear a Brass framed revolver can last after all the negative comments I have read. Can someone suggest a good place in Renton WA to get BP and tools for this Revolver? Can't wait to get out and shoot it.

FotoandT: @reysaint1 Cap size is dependent upon the individual gun. You're just gonna have to go by trial and error. What you DON'T want is for a cap to fall off EVER! That can cause a chain fire. Buy a tin of both and start with the 10, if it fits the nipple and goes bang every time you drop the hammer then 10 it is. Make sure they are on all the way, use a popsicle stick or dowel to seat them. All this can be done in the garage with just caps and no load in the cylinder.

FotoandT: @Jake64676 Let's see...Jamie wears a beret, I wear a derby. Jamie is bald as a cueball and I have a ponytail. Jamie has clean arms and I've got ink. Hmmmm, must be the mustache. I have offered to sign autographs in Texas though, just for grins. Seriously though, I wish I had his money.

FotoandT: Parts are pretty to easy to come by, try Dixie Gun Works and there are some others as well. What exactly is broken/missing? And do I understand correctly that you're not too sure of what the gun even is? Once I know what you need I can maybe point you in the right direction.

Jack Hoff: i know its a pietta 1851 confederate navy....44 caliber. the spring that locks the cylinder in place is what's broken.

FotoandT: More than likely not but check with local law enforcement BEFORE you buy one if it concerns you. The majority of states regard Black Powder guns as non-guns. But given that you live on the east coast where politicians fear that law-abiding citizens just might use any means necessary to remove one of the thieves from the public trough I double check just to make sure. A firearms violation can ruin your life, litterally.

Joe Hunnicutt: Real Black Powder is best IMO, but it can be hard to find because it's classed as an explosive. Pyrodex P is easier to find and will work but it doesn't ignite as easily and can cause hangfires or misfires until you learn how to use it. There's a lot of information for beginners on The High Road dot org in their Black Powder section. The folks there can and will help you out and I suggest anybody needing info on BP shooting check that forum out.

FotoandT: @smartacus88 The "Confederate" Navy has a brass frame. Although the chambers will hold over 30gr of 3f powder, doing so will quickly stretch that brass frame. In order to prevent this, small 16gr loads are used. To insure that the powder is properly compressed a filler is used to make sure that there is no air space between the powder and ball. It also brings the ball close to the chamber mouth providing for less distance traveled between chamber and forcing cone.

Gage Webster: @FotoandT about how much is it for 5lb at powderinc?

FotoandT: 16-20gr MAX on a brass framed gun, no sense damaging a perfectly good gun. More powder DOES NOT mean better accuracy either. My pet load is 16gr for this gun, your mileage may vary.

FotoandT: For the cost of a bag of "Cheap" lubed wads I can buy at least two cans of Crisco, it's personal preference. Some folks even shoot with no lube whatsoever. 25gr is more than I would want to put in a brass gun. 15-20gr is fine, maxing out a load doesn't usually provide better accuracy in BP guns anyway. As far as the .451 ball is concerned, it depends upon the maker of the gun Pietta and Uberti both like .454's. .451's might load easier, but you also might get a chainfire 'cause of bad fit

Gage Webster: PLEASE REPLY. Are you using Real black powder or pyrodex?

smartacus88: @FotoandT good video!.....but i have to ask..whats the idea with the cornmeal?
