If you look very very closely, is there any sign that the nipples are platinum lined?

What size is the hole in the nipples? I realize they are hard to measure, but perhaps you have some furnace nipple picks?

SKB, have you poured any lead through the mould? I am interested in seeing the bullet and knowing its diameter and weight, as well as the bore size or marked caliber. I am an oval bore aficianado, though more of a cartridge guy than a muzzleloader guy. Brent's comment about the cross patch is correct. You cute two patches and line them up into a cross, into which the bullet is seated. But now I see that this is a tri-fold patch, which is really unusual. Though the case label says it all: Charles Lancaster was an "Inventor," many of his inventions were contrary to conventional wisdom, and his inventions worked incredibly well.
