A Word of Caution Regarding Smokeless Powder:
- Do not load the cartridges with more than the maximum loads specified in the reloaders handbook.
- There should never be any mixing of two powders, regardless of the type, brand, or source of the powders.
- Never replace any other smokeless powder for black powder or any other substitute for black powder.
