Hunting Man All of what you stated is what makes flintlock hunting the best!! Hunting the old way brings a certain satisfaction that few chose to enjoy. It's a blast, no pun intended

RobertSmith Flintlocks are more accurate and give along effective range because of their spiral grooves of rifling. But on a muzzle-loading firearm they take more time to load because of tight-fitting ball, and after repeated shots black powder tended to foul the barrels.

Hunting Man Went to the range today and sighted in two flintlocks. I am very pleased with the front globe and rear peep sight arrangement I installed. I really lucked out as each rifle was on paper with the first shots and just had to dial in from there. I was having a tough time using open sights and the peeps cleared my vision up perfectly.

Hunting Man With my buddy having the heart problem the PA hunt may change, I hate hunting alone and probably not a good thing for me to do anymore????I'm sitting on tags for PA and Ohio

Hunting Man

I have two flintlocks to get sighted in because I installed peep sights on them. My good hunting buddy from Michigan will be coming, this is a first for him to use a flintlock. PA late season begins after Christmas and runs to Jan 10th. I plan to spend a week chasing deer around the woods to fill a tag. Hopefully they will have some snow on the ground.
