    Depends on the gun and rifling in the barrel. If its a 1:28 to 1:48 I would try 320 gr Thompson Maxi Balls and Triple 7 powder. Start at 100gr and work up from there until u find the best load. If its a 1:48 to 1:66 round balls will shoot best. I shot a Thompson Black Diamond XR and that load was very accurate. Hope that helps!
