    If anyone has or knows where I can find an owner's manual for a FIE .45 cal Kentucky Long Rifle (circa 1981) I would be most appreciative.

    Tried searching the internet but no joy.

    If anyone has any recommended ball sizes and or loads I would gladly take that info as well as I have no clue where to start.

    Thx

    #11 cap .015 patch .440 Speer or Hornady round ball 60 gr. 2F OR 3F Goex. 2F will give you more shots between swabbing, because the fouling is softer, less of it, and less gritty, 3F will give you a few more FPS.

    #11 cap .010 linen or .015 pillow ticking patch .440 Speer or Hornady round ball 60 gr. 2F OR 3F Goex. 2F will give you more shots between swabbing, because the fouling is softer, less of it, and less gritty, 3F will give you a few more FPS. You can use more or less powder if you want, but that right there was my most accurate load.
