bought this a couple of days ago and was supplied with lead balls made by balleurope size bull 440440 marked on box, they are not a tight fit in the chamber. they drop in but do not come out unless the gun is held upside down and the chamber tapped repeatedly with a pen(close to hand) in the uberti instructions it says to use .454 and that they shold be such a tight fit that they need to be forced into the chamber with the loading rod, shaving of some of the metal from the ball, I did not find the personin the shop where I bought the gun particulary helpful bearing in mind that this is myfirst black powder gun..I have n0ot attempted to load the gun as the loosness of the fit seemed dangerous.
also the caps I was sold are marked 4.0 and are made by sellier& bellot checkovslovakia ,you all seem to use size 10(if this is in inches and mine are centimetres then they roughly the same size?
last but not least Ihad to ask for wads and was sold wonder wads which are pre greased,uberti say to use wads over the ball with grease(will any kind do),these however fit between ball and powder...
sorry to have gone on for so long but HELP
thanks in advance helmet
