Operating the Confederate LeMat grapeshot percussion revolver

Shooting percussion revolvers is never boring. And this is especially true for the 10 shot LeMat revolver shooting 9 .44 cal paper cartridges and a shotgun cartridge with 40 grains of powder and 15 .30 cal pellets in 5 tiers.

The Pietta repro is a well made arm, however be careful what size of round ball you use with it. The ramrod is quite fragile, so avoid heavily oversized balls like .454 or .457. I used .445 as it is good for the chambers and the bore as well.
