If you could have one Muzzleloader??
I would like a authenic Sam Hawken rifle. This would fill my rifle needs and then some to own one of his masterpeices. I knew when I built my Hawken rendition it would only be a HM rendition but to have one of the Master's rifles pretty awsome. What's your dream ML'der?
I already own it. A Traditions Vortek Ultra Light in Camo. I guess I am a simple person. It shoots straight and it is light.
3x with bruce and crawdaddy love the vortek
Keeping in mind, "If you could have one Muzzleloader??"
For me, it would be something like this, but right handed:
It's a Pennsylvania Fowler in 20 ga. smoothbore. I could use it for hunting any kind of game, large or small.
for me it would have to be a full blown custom rifle, flintlock of course in high end curly maple. I too am a simple man!
I am curious. Can smoothbores shoot a round ball fairly accurate? I've never shot a flintlock before.
According to military records the British stated that a smooth bore musket was accurate out to 50 yds after that just hitting a man sized target somewhere at 100 yds was considered lucky. A rifled flintlock was very accurate out to 100 yds and could shoot 150 with fairly good accuracy. Reports of 200 yd hits are fairly well reported.
Awesome info! So for that Penn Fowler, what would be the best bullets for large game? Probably buckshot right? Or at 50 yards or less, use a 0.600 round ball?
Patched round ball for big game. Shot for small game.
