Dixie (Pedersoli) Jaeger Rifle

I bought my Dixie (pedersoli) Jaeger a few months ago and had some troubles at first with my first flintlock, but with advise from some of you here and lots of shooting, things have really turned around. I also learned how important a good sharp flint is, I switched to Rich Pierce flints and and learned how much 4F to prime the pan with and The delayed ignition is gone. just one big boom now. Shootin a Flintlock was a little rough at first but boy I'm sure getting to really like it, I can't seem to remember where I put my cap guns Went to the range today and started out at 25 yards and ended at 50, I shot over 20 rounds with out a misfire that was a first for me. Here's my last 5 shots at 50 yards using a bench rest. I need to tinker with the sites just a tad.

Great group! I'd say you figured it out. After you tinker with those sights I would try that load at 100 and see how it does.
