Wow! Cool moose pic!

I think I'll test your 110 2F load and see how that works.

Thanks!

Good pic
Nothing beats the feel of a handmade southern iron mounted flintlock on a fine frosty morning

Michigan's late muzzleloading season was still young and hadn't been taken over by the dreaded inlines yet.

I found this bucks track one day when I was out cutting wood. I went home, dropped off my wood and grabbed my then new .54 flintlock. I tracked the buck to a small woodlot where I figured he was bedded. I picked a spot to sit and waited hoping he'd come out that evening.

About a half hour before dark he walked out into the open thinking the hunting season was over. From about 50yd's I put a round ball through his lights.

The rifle was made by Jud Brennan in 1977 and this picture was taken in front of the cabin where he and his family was living at the time. Jud moved to Alaska in 1985 and is still making fine flintlocks.

Here's Ol' Fancy Pants today with it's ivory and buffalo horn inlays,  it's still a beautiful rifle and  has counted many coups over the years.

20ga smoothbore loaded with 80gr 2FF 595 prb





Big congrats. That moderate load proves a lot. Our muzzle guns are far more effective than many, including some here, than they are given credit for. 'course, he would be dedder ifn' ye had used 200 grain charge.
