Pellets and Flintlocks!

Why would you want to do this? Loose powder is so much easier to load. It is more sure of going off and you can vary your load!
Pellets,you got 50 or 100 grain load. You must push prime powder into the flash hole and hope it stays there?
It is just as dirty as black powder,maybe worse?
A friend of mine bought one of the Pellet guns and carried it one season.After a bunch of miss fires,he sold it to a buddy of his. He bought a regular flinter and is getting 90 to 95% ignition,maybe better!
What do you think of these?

Re: Pellets and Flintlocks!

If it doesn't say goex... Or it can't be loaded 5 or 10 grains a time... I want no parts of it.

I believe in God, family and fair dealings.

Re: Pellets and Flintlocks!

I see the pellets as just another gimmick, playing into attempts at gaining an edge and/or less complicated. Instead causing new issues to be resolved. Marketing...gotta love it!
