.69 what the f*** I have no idea a musket🤔
They were used in the civil war.
Close, but more cannon like
what is shown is a 69 caliber round ball mold that is used in smoothbore muskets.
Getting a .69 caliber cannon
Cool, should be fun.
I had a couple of the muskets before, don’t even remember the make or models. but I do remember they sling a huge chunk of lead. think I still have some cast balls here somewhere.
Not a rifle Sir… You probably know that but we are a detail oriented group no?
Along the same lines as big caliber black powder, have you ever researched how devisting the, I believe 58 Cal. Mini ball ( Claud Minie I think ) was… Early Sharps I believe, big, heavy and relatively slow can still produce nasty wounds!
What caliber was yours?
I had a couple 58/s too, I still have one but it’s not the traditional musket type rifle, more along the hawken lines. It’s a butt stomping lightweight gun too.
Don’t make me ban you mister.
Ban his ass! No preferential treatment permitted here!
