Has anyone on this forum had the cylinder bored out on there Old Army? At this point in time, about 47 gr of Pyrodex P will come within 1/16" from the top of the cylinder face with around 3/8" compression to seat my bullets. There are no signs of problems, but I could stand to gai a few more grains, because I'm taking it as a primary weapon pig hunting. Penetration testing has shown good results, but more would be better when it comes to pigs. How much of an increase do you get:scrutiny: :evil:
