Re: Best musket nipples?
I'm glad that this discussion came up. I have been wondering the same. I have used stainless and many years ago, the ampco. One thing that I have noticed is that many of the nipples I see for sale have what I think, are huge flash holes. Does anyone know what is optimal for a flash hole for a musket nipple. I may be crazy (well I am..) but it seems that my .54's burn out nipples faster than my .58's. I shoot 3f goex or more recently, swiss 2fg in skirmish loads. Nothing excessive as far as pressure is concerned.
