Quick question: can I used nice shot as a replacement for lead in muzzleloaders? I have a 20 bore flintlock trade musket that I would like to take duck hunting (and small game hunting in nontoxic areas).......will it A.) scratch or harm my bore in anyway when using 'traditional' (i.e. felt and cardboard wads) loading methods B.) can I use as I do lead (by volume, not by weight) and if so, C). any thoughts on patterns prior to test firing (gun has no choke...cylinder bore)?

Thanks in advance....................

Mr.16 gauge,

Yes, Nice Shot will work in your muzzleloader.

No, it won't harm or scratch your barrel. A light dusting of dry graphite will keep it from leaving any residue.

Volume measure is the better way of using Nice Shot, either with shot bushings or scoops.

I think it will pattern well, I personally haven't used it this way but put one round on paper to see. If your shotgun patterns well with lead, Nice Shot will probably be a little tighter. Just by using data that others have submitted.
