    Shot some US 1862 cartridges this weekend.

    Made up some US 1862 paper cartridges to use in individuals this weekend with my Pedersoli P58.

    I have never shot this gun in competition as it likes a huge 520 grain bullet with 60 grains of 2F powder. But I had made up this ammo a year or so ago and wanted to burn it up before the lube got any more crusty.
