Getting ready

We leave for our Newfoundland moose hunt in one month, so the push is on to get everything finalized. The 40-70 Ballard highwall is dialed in out to 500 yards. I need to load a few more hunting rounds and hit the range one more time to make sure the loads are "good to go". I finished the "long range" (200 yard) sight for the .62 cal. flintlock and need to shoot it in. pick up some last minute items and get the bags packed. going to pick up the new cap for my new pick up tomorrow, so I am/we are getting close. the 4th will be here before we know it, can't wait!

Good luck on your trip, hope you find a big one.

Out of curiosity what weight bullet are you running for the 40-70 and do you have an approximate velocity? I’m curious to know how it stacks up compared to something like the .405 Win.

Good luck, I will be waiting to hear about your hunt and see your pics.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
