    Welcome from Pa..............As for the Big Bore Question , make sure the muzzle crown is not sharp. Just recrowned a brand new one that had such a bad sharp crown , it couldn't be loaded with any type projectile. Recrown fixed it.

    .530 round ball compared to a.610 round ball

    .62 with 90 gr. FFG is good out to 150 yds. if you can handle the recoil. I used one of these in a longrifle for about 10 yrs. in the late Pa. flint deer season. It shoots flat enough that the trajectory is very predictable. All the deer I killed , were w/ln 100 yds. except for one.

    If I wanted a buffalo rifle.....

    I read a book year or so ago , that records the last buffalo known to be killed in south western West Virginia just before 1800 , and on the east side of the Ohio River. The hunter used a flintlock longrifle , shot the beast , then followed it until it died. Caliber of his rifle ???

    Another thought (to me) for making a patchbox hinge

    I used the last hinge I had last spring. I 've not had a chance to do any m/l rifle work , since April due to a sick wife. Those hinges work fine , just cut out the patcbox lid , and the body of the box , solder the hinge to both parts , and inlet. Lotsa fun. Ya can get psycho and work...
