530 Hornady patched round ball. 1/2 the fun with flintlocks is the knowledge that sometimes the thing doesn't go off and the animal wins. You have to have a good sense of humor, extra stalking skills, patience to get them into that 30-75 yd range and if using a flintlock with blackpowder you won't hunt in the rain or heavy misty days very well. Other than bowhunting, flintlock hunting runs a close second to most enjoyment while hunting for me. With 6-8 " of snow on the ground and 20* outside you have the make-ins for a great memory.
