Recovered Roundball

Here is the .54 Hornady .530 roundball I recovered from the doe I shot on Saturday. The load was 80 grains of FFg Goex with a pillow ticking patch and homemade moose juice. The shot was 20-25 yards, broadside. Broke the shoulder, went through the heart and broke a rib on the far side. 40 yard recovery and lots of blood.

I can smell the smoke, hear the thunder and feel the recoil! Good job. What kind of rifle?

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Lyman Great Plains Rifle flintlock put together from a kit with Davis Triggers added (not the triggers in the pic).

Nice! I'm sure you will like it. I love mine, it's very accurate. The Davis deerslayer triggers were worth every penny. They're not even comparable to the factory triggers in my opinion.

Re: Recovered Roundball

Of course you all know that such kills are extraordinary luck. All the Manufacturers and in-line makes swear we need 180 grains of new "Super Moon Shot" pellets and a $6 lucite tipped 340 grain Super Secret Alloy bullet to kill whitetails. Don't forget the special Chernoble Nuclear 209 primers made for igniting the faux powders.
