I'm new to the sport (shot a couple of times and got hooked). I recently acquired a GP Hunter in .50 caliber, and have read a variety of opinions on this and other sites as to what works and doesn't work. I'm interested in knowing what I should purchase to complete my "initial investment." All I have is the rifle (it came with a wooden ram rod, and from my reading it sounds like I should replace that...but with what?) Any suggestions are welcome. At first, I plan on using it solely for target practice, but may eventually want to get into hunting. My initial desire is to use round balls, but I don't know which, or what patches to use, or what to use as cleaner, etc. I look forward to any advice you may have. Thanks.
