A day at the range.
« on: August 05, 2020, 06:03:02 PM »
Getting my Ol' Faithful ready to make meat this fall. It's a flintlock smoothbore. I can shoot bird shot or ball out of it. Shooting a .54 patched round ball over 100gs of FFFG . The first target at 15 yards, the second at 25. I did a little sight adjustment to get the point of impact above the front sight some. It's always a relaxed, slow paced time that I enjoy very much.

Well it looks like at those ranges you are good to go.

I've never used a flint lock before but have taken a few deer with a percussion rifle. I've gotten rid of all of my muzzle loading rifles and handguns. I really never used them much anyway.

I'll be stretching the ranges out to 50 and 75 yards on successive trips.
