    Hi all,

    I ordered a conversion cyl. for my piatta 1858s. I keep a spare cylinder loaded with 40g 3f and ball but I think that after dark the flash would cost me my night visionhttp://images.thehighroad.org/smilies/shocker.gif So I am looking for a 250g load at 8-9hun fps and of course a lead bullet. What I've found on line don't specify all lead but do say cowboy ammo. Is cowboy ammo always lead? Any info is appreciated.
    Bob

    If I were you I'd just go shove as much Triple Seven FFFG in there as you can and top it off with a nice soft lead bullet. Or you could do that with the regular cylinder, that would work!
