Knowing gwitness, none of the above. It .50 for his circa 1776 Tactical assault muskets!

Nope.....Neither AE nor BMG.





The Kentucky Rifle I built, will be fired for the first time at LCR on Saturday.

I never have shot a black power rifle.... I'd take you up on that offer if I was going to LCR...

Pictures of the gun being fired can be quite spectacular with lots of muzzleflash, sparks and smoke.


ETA: 1/2 inch dia balls ????


Man, you got small balls.

I'm bringing a few (VERY few ) 45-70 BP cartridges that I loaded up some years ago to shoot in a Rolling Block rifle. Cast the bullets myself, too. I have GOT to get my reloading shit set up one of these days.

If anyone has any projectiles (be creative) that will safely exit a 1 5/8 (1.625) bore please bring them. There will be 750 to 1000 grains of FFG BP behind them.

, jus funnin' wit ya, bro,,


I haven't been able to catch any muzzle flash outa my cannon,
mostly I just get smoke, and the thing has recoiled out of frame


the shot that fishkeepr got is , so far, the best "money shot" ,
erm,, ACTION shot,, yeah thats it,,


Anyway, the muzzle started right up at the (ahem) bulletproof shooting line.







I was going to try some different loadings to see if I could get some Moah Flash this time @ LCR,





, like these guys in the BP forum


, and the "Salute" thread
