Default Blackpowder Shoot


In September my friends and I are going to do a black powder shoot up around the Grass Valley area. I am bringing the following:

- Springfield Model 1842 Musket
- J.P. Murray
- Remington New Model Army, Short-Barreled Version
- Hawken Rifle

I want to shoot buck & ball out of the Springfield and want to know if anyone here has done it. Also, if anyone here has preferred loads for the above firearms (round ball, Minie ball, buck & ball). I'm using Jack's Battle Powder (not a fan of substitutes).

The new army would probably just a 30gr load with an oversized ball. Great job shooting real blackpowder substitutes just don't cut it.

If your Hawken is anything like mine it will like .490 ball , pillow ticking patch, spit ( yes you got a mouth full) lube and 70 grs by volume of your propellant, CCI #11 caps.

Mine hits a half dollar target dead center at 50 yds. w/iron sites of course.

Won many BP Trail Walks with that load , will see if I got an old tie breaker target to scan in.
Let those without fault cast the first stone .

Bweise says "I have to say the situation was not at all helped by 22 yr old former Airsoft douches who kept touting here, "But possession is not illegal!" "

Those that live in glass houses should not throw stones , cause I got a sling shot

Fighting on the internet is like being in the special Olympics , everybody wins but your still retarded.
