I would like to know what order is the buck and ball loaded and how are the wads used. Thanks for the help. I am also looking for info on a Robert Evens around 1835 and the Fort Hall post.

There was an original bess found off the coast of florida (I believe thats where it was) and when x-rayed, found to still be loaded. There was powder first (obviously), then 3 or 4 "buck" topped with a ball.
