Looking to bear hunt with the flintlock. I have a .50 caliber traditions flintlock. I've only used round balls in my rifle and have killed more deer with it than any other weapon in my arsenal (have yet to harvest a buck with it). My question to the more experienced smoke-stickers: what would be your recommendation for bullet choice? And is my .50 too light for penetration? I believe if I waited for a shot within 25 yards I would have adequate penetration, given proper shot placement on an average size bear (150lbs). I want to use my .50 cal, so any suggestions of double barrels and larger caliber guns will not be useful. Looking for anyone experienced in this area to comment.
