Welcome to the Forum

I have the same pistol and the instruction manual gives the following load data for the .54 caliber:

.54 caliber .530 round ball 50 grs. FFFG powder

I use a .010" lubricated patch with this powder charge. Hope this helps. All the best...

My Lyman .54 caliber percussion pistol shoots a bit high at 25 yards. I will have my gunsmith fit a higher front sight to lower the point of impact and then use a file to get it where I want it. I like to carry my .54 pistol when using my .54 Lyman Trade Rifle or .54 Great Plains Rifle. All the best...
