Just cast 56 bullets in .69 claiber, 485gr for the cannon I’ll be getting shortly.
Yer makin me want another musket gun.
I have two black powder now, a .44 pistol, and a .50 rifle. I’m also in the process of building another Kentucky long gun in .50 for school. I’m also going to be ordering a .69 caliber cannon in about a week. My son and I will be building that. I also found a site that sells 1/2 scale cannon barrels, you just build the carriage. I’m super interested in that.
I love black powder shooting and the guns. I usually go through 10 to 12 pounds of powder in a summer. hadn’t shot them much this year. been too busy and the suckers cut down my shooting woods. and deer camps too far to drive just to shoot for a day and it’a also been miserably hot and humid this summer. ok…that’s enough excuses.lol
I know the feeling. I’ve been getting some time in at the indoor range, but they don’t allow BP. The fact that it hasn’t stopped raining here for more than a few days at a time for the past six months just makes hitting the outdoor range hard.
Can you share the link?
This is what they did to the road I used to go shoot at,
Would musketballs be more accurate if they were cast with dimples like golf balls?
Only if they spin. The dimples don’t make the ball more accurate, just improves the resistance through the air.
