    know about that but his whole explanation of why not does make some sense He says he can cause a chain fire 9 out of 10 times by crushing some of the powder between the ball and the chamber walls and overall sloppy loading practises i e having loose powder on the front of the cylinder Reckons the crushed powder between the ball and chamber wall causes a path for the flame to reach the powder As I said it sounds like it might make sense and if I didn t love my rollies that much I would try it and see if I could induce chain fires with either hypothesis but alas I will not be trying it I do like a clean load in any case and I do not like spilling the precious black so I load cleanly and I prefer caps that seat nice and tight to prevent possible rear entry as well Also an Interesting point he makes is about the practise of smearing grease over the balls I have had my reservations about the reasoning behind it ever since I saw that after the first shot almost all the grease was blown off of the remaining balls in any case Also I never could quite see how that bit of grease remaining could stop a chain fire with the force of the blast and all His recomendation is to place a cork felt wad over the charge or corn flour filler and then smear a SMALL amount of grease UNDER the ball before seating it couldn t this perhaps induce ball creep Also he makes it clear that the only purpose of the grease is to soften the fouling in the barrell which does make more sense to me As I said interesting reading even if one doesn t agree with all he says Jaco jacorad Posts 186 Joined Mon Feb 25 2013 10 14 am Top Re Another Good Web Article and Possible source of chain f by Spitfire Tue Nov 12 2013 5 45 pm I think the only time you ll get crushed powder between the ball and chamber wall is when the ball is a loose fit A felt wad will work better than cork and I suppose if you put lube in front of the wad should work but not for the long term By blowing a lung full of breath through the barrel the fouling also stay soft Spitfire Posts 2004 Joined Fri Mar 02 2012 10 25 pm Top Re Another Good Web Article and Possible source of chain f by Mutt Tue Nov 12 2013 7 11 pm Sounds like a great steaming pile of horse sh t to me I had a Uberti rollie for over 30 years loaded that 44 with a pure lead ball in 451 Covered the ball with a dab of motor grease and never experienced a chainfire EVER I used american german SB and some caps from across the iron

    powder and ball bullet to keep contamination off the powder The velocity of a ball bullet out of a C B revolver is too low to bother about leading if a slightly harder lead mix is used But harder lead should not be used if you have not followed the chamber size tips given above Loading the harder lead ball bullet with the loading lever of the gun will place unnecessary strain on the lever What I do however is to lubricate the cylinder pin with some NATURAL patch lube WD40 or Ballistol will also do on the cylinder pin This keeps the pin lubricated and the fouling soft preventing the cylinder from binding Bullet creep Polishing the inside of your cylinder mirror smooth is not a good idea The slight roughness helps retain the ball bullet in the chamber and resists ball bullet creep If your ball bullets still creep forward when shooting your revolver then either the ball bullet diameter is too small for the chamber or the load is unbalanced Either the bullet is too light and or the powder charge is too high or you have an over sized chamber in relation to the others This is quite common on the cheaper guns Measure your chambers and if you have one that is over sized make sure you shoot this chamber first Do not try and load a larger diameter bullet to compensate It is not worth the hassle Off course if you lube your ball bullets you are inviting chamber creep Hunting loads You will be surprised how versatile a C B revolver is for hunting The larger calibre revolvers will take small hoofed game where allowed and within close range Or you can use your revolver for rabbit and bird hunting Personally I carry my C B as a backup when hunting with my ball gun Never needed it yet but sure nice to know that you have a backup 6 of them when afield There are times when you need to make a mercy shot on a wounded animal and a large calibre rifle close in could just be a danger to yourself when that bullet hits something hard and comes back at you But as with all things you take afield after game practice practice and again practice Hope this helps If it ain t a ball it ain t a bullet Gunsports Posts 1175 Joined Fri Mar 02 2012 10 10 am Location Oudtshoorn RSA Website Top Re Tips Cap Ball Revolvers by Spitfire Sun Sep 08 2013 6 25 pm Good info Glen Spitfire Posts 2004 Joined Fri Mar 02 2012 10 25 pm Top Re Tips Cap Ball Revolvers by jacorad Mon Oct 28 2013 12 55 pm Thanks very much This is very helpful information Just a question you say you don t use any lube on top of the balls when seated in the chambers Do you replace this with a lubed patch between ball and powder
