16g. Double Barrel Percussion - some pics added.
Just recently I purchased a 16 gauge double barrel percussion muzzle-loader. Never been down this road before as far as Shotgun loads goes, etc... as I've only hunted with a T/C Hawkens 50 Cal. Flintlock.
I plan on using it for some Small Game, maybe even Turkey.
Just what does everyone use as far as:
A. Shot Cups needed to be used to keep a pattern OR fibre wads, over shot card, over powder cards better?
B. Black Powder measurements?
C. Shot measurements?
My plan is using 2F Goex down the barrel.
#4 Shot for Turkey
#7 1/2 Shot or #8 for Squirrel, etc.
