Lunger Posted December 22, 2016 Share Posted December 22, 2016 I've been shooting my Gibbs with a chase patch recently, and having a blast. Bought a 45 cal inline muzzleloader the other day so I'll be paperpatching it tomorrow! Anyway, I got to thinking bout my 3855, and wondering why a guy couldn't breech seat a paperpatch bullet, and shoot black out of it? I'd droptube it nearly full of swiss, then place a 60 thou card wad on it to make it about flush......but then thought what would happen when that wad slams into the base of that bullet? What about the airgap? Yes, my gunsmith opened my chamber up to the correct dimensions for .380 bullets, and yes it shoots well. Anyway, I better have some help with the breech seating idea before I learn an expensive lesson on my own. Thanks, Lunger Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
