Re: new to flintlock
I would start at 70gr FF in the tube with a mixi hunter or maxi ball and ffff in the pan (Goex powder). Bring your cleaning suppies to the range and keep the bbl clean and cool between shots, and just have FUN!!!
One thing I did learn early on, after 3-4 times to the range I was shooting fine out to 50 yards. But my first shot at a deer was at dusk. There is a big difference between havig that pan ignite several inches from your face during the daylight and dusk. Boy did I flinch from that flash!!! If you have a chance, shoot around dusk at least once.
We all make choices, some good, some bad, can you live up to yours?
