Re: todays hunt video-blackpowder
all i know its a 54 cal smoothbore,we were using 6 shot,about 3/4 ounce i suppose,for a powder charge it was two lug nuts welded together with 2ffg.the guy i was with has the gun and was useing alot of stuff found on the ground like moss,leaves,bark etc.it was preety cool to actually see it work.near the end of the day he started digging into his pouch and used whatever was in there to get a good pattern/load but i dont remember any of it.
i know there was a lead disk he used over the powder patch and before the shot,that really boosted the recoil and probably the velocity also.we were breaking plastic water bottles at about 20 yards and getting 6-8 bbs in it
