Black English flints Vs German agate flints
Greetings Fellow Flinters,
I own a Lyman Deerstalker .50 cal flintlock rifle. I have found that my Gun loves 90 grains of double-f to fire 295 grain power-belt bullets with what I consider very nice accuracy at 50 yards. I don't want to try killing a deer passed that range with open sights, as I'm afraid I may wound and not kill it. My question is this... So far, I've only tried German agate flints in my gun. They work, but after about 10 to 12 shots, they get temperamental and tend to misfire. Has anyone who owns a Lyman Deerstalker .50 cal flintlock tried other flints, like Black English? I hear good things about them.
Thanks as always for your precious time.
