    I seem to have gotten the basics of 'cap n ball' down quite well; load powder, stuff in wad, seat wad, put on ball, seat ball, smother with crisco, cap and fire. Not that hard actually....

    Now I have just got myself a load of conicals and am staring at them with questions running through my tiny little brain.

    I have worked out how to seat them quite well, but, they have lube grooves.
    What should I lube them with?
    Is Crisco ok for the lube grooves?
    Do I put Crisco over the top like balls?
    Do I use a wad between powder and balls?

    You should probably just try everything you can think of, and see what your revolver likes best. Some of them are really picky.

    Try everything to find out what is best. Personally when I shoot conicals I use a wad with lube in the grooves, but none over the chamber.
