todays hunt video-blackpowder

the rule was after three misses the guy with the long gun could finish the race,dogs did good on the 3/4 inch of frozen ice with a dusting of snow,rabbits stayed above ground.some were mis fires,some where un cocked hammers,some were hits but not enough to kill .was a blast

Wow! You guys sure know how to have some fun! Nice video

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.

Re: todays hunt video-blackpowder

its easy to pile them high with alot of rabbits and shotguns,a little harder with the contenders,but this is a whole nother level,i had a couple that got no spark,one where it wasnt cocked,as well as a charde where the shot fell out of the barrel as i stood watching the bunny haha

Re: todays hunt video-blackpowder

it took use alot of shots till we decided to stop at a dump pile and pattern it,seemed it was hitting but without enough punch to kill a rabbit,after a few tricks we were breaking water bottles at 20 yards.this week we are going again

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
