Anyone shoot one of these? What loading do you use?

Link? I'd be interested to see it (the rifle).

EDIT--never mind, found it.

I have the Minuteman and a swivel breech, both by Numrich, both in .45. A .445 ball and .015 patch seem to work fine. What powder charge is working best for others?

It's probably a good idea to measure the land to land bore diameter to see if the barrels are true .45's or closer to being .44's. But either way a starting .45 target load would be ~40 - 45 grains of powder. Then increase the powder charge in increments of 5 - 10 grains until the accuracy and power is satisfactory for the distance and the task, whether that's to punch paper or to hunt game with.
