Thanks. I did read it and picked up what I needed yesterday afternoon to do this.
No bullet lube in the sharps. It's not an original and I don't shoot black powder in it.
Now my trapdoor is a genuine 1884 made rifle and it would be a death wish to shoot modern powder 45-70 through it so it gets real powder ( no pyrodex or the like) and I've got pre lubed bullets on top of a wad.
I'm still working out the perfect load for that one. I've got the same bullet cast with three hardnesses of lead and sized with three different sizing dies for a total of 9 variations on the same bullet mold.

#1's are awesome.
I had a 458 win mag that could touch bullet holes at 200 yards.
I sold it to fund another rifle. I need to replace that thing.
