Sounds like a productive use of time off...

Give ole john our best

John received all the parts he needed yesterday from Muzzleloader Builder's Supply and probably has the rifle halfway built by now. I know he had the stock mostly done. All he needed were parts to put in it and to do a final shaping. Here's a photo he sent me of the stock a couple of weeks ago when he first cut it out. He has the barrel and ramrod channels cut out now and I think he was going to seat the barrel last night. I got a Rice barrel this time instead of a Colerain. Colerain only goes down to a 36 caliber and I wanted a 32.

I was wondering if you had your skwirl rifle yet...   it'll be hard to ' pass the torch' from a proven weapon, but I'm sure you will keep us posted!

Nice shooting!

God bless,

Lots of folks like to shoot their guns on the Fourth just to make some racket. I just cannot do that unless I am shooting at some food. I killed these fat, young-n-tenders yesterday morning and they were at least 50 yards from the house so it was like a real hunt and everything. I sneaked up on both of them and actually kept barking at one so he would continue his barking and let me pinpoint his location. I used my 12 gauge smoothbore, Ole Betsy, to get the job done.

My buddy, John Pruitt, gets all the parts he needs today to make me a new squirrel killer, a 32 caliber rifle. I should have it in my hands in a couple of weeks. I don't see how she could possibly be as good to me as Ole Betsy but I'm willing to give her a tryout.

Guess I am slower then some...

Are you saying you ground down 2f artillary powder to 3f size?

I've read a teeny bit on that and I thought it required wetting powder, grindin with mortar & pestil and pushing thru a precise size screen and then let dry??? ???

Testing my reworked ( Originally was 2fa Artillery powder ) 3fg powder today. 50 yards with my Traditions Hawken Woodsman .50cal. 70gr 3fg, .020 patches and .490 round ball.

 Happy? You can't wipe the smile off my face!

 4fg Gearhart Owen in the pan. Instant ignition.

Its been a long while since I last shot the flinter. Mostly because my powder supply is always down. Shouldn't be an issue for a while!

Bummer...you made it sound like a great rally...some states are still allowing outdoor events, but the PLA did an archery thing there and the camping area got pretty full so I guess there'd be some closer contact...
