Mine's old school - and I only use Pyrodex pellets.

Blued finish and only a 3-9 x 40 scope. I refused to go to a 50mm objective lens, so I could keep the muzzleloading experience real.

A lot of us who hunt the shotgun zone or OH consider them a legal single-shot rifle.

I like triple-7 better than pyrodex, it is alot easier to clean, and I can shoot more rounds between cleanings.

I use those Winchester 209 size flints.

Never fails. Even when I put the pellet in backwards...


I shot one of those old CVA flintlock kit guns once. It's cool and fun, but when hunting I want rock-solid reliability. I have fired patched balls before and it's fun, but go back to Powerbelts or .44 sabots for deer.

A buddy is hard-core - only wears woolies and buckskins, uses a full flintlock with hand-cast patched balls.

do you leave it loaded over night? normally once its loaded i leave it out side and just take the primer out when im not hunting, i leave it outside in the barn so it doesnt take in moisture from condensation.
