A little FLINTLOCK fun today!
« on: June 27, 2020, 06:43:19 PM »
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!

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??? ???
