Flintlocks + pellets add some 3f????
I am not a hard core flintlock hunter or shooter,but,i can't see why anyone would want to use pellets in a flinter. If you have to add some black powder,down the barrel,to ignite the pellet,why not just use a charge of black power?
2 guys that i've hunted with,bought pellet firing guns. They tried them for 2 or 3 seasons and sold them. They are back to using plain old black powder and very happy with the results!!!
One thing i've noticed,you have no trouble selling off a pellet flinter? Their are folks who won't or don't believe that loose powder is the real answer to flinting!!!!!!
