Hello, I have a question about the use of wads under a bore sized paper-patched bullet using black powder. Loading is for a .40-70 2 1/2" straight ctg. If I use a hard veg. fiber wad under the bullet, but use a softer wad under that..say a felt wad, and or Puff-Lon filler..in order to reduce case capacity for a lighter recoiling load...will the kick of the powder charge still obturate bullet to groove dia.? Bullets are 330gr. cast 30-1. Thanks!
