    Lead Shrinkage Question

    Apparently nobody at the range I go to has ever seen a flintlock before. Every single time I go, at some point, someone asks if they can get a video of me shooting it.

    Empty Metal Goex Cans

    I don't really shoot enough to warrant bulk buying. A few months ago, I bought about 8lbs of 3F Scheutzen. 8lbs = 56,000 grains 1 shot = 80 grain (give or take if I'm zeroing in on a load) 700 shots from 8lbs of powder At around 30 shots per range trip (between 2 weapons) once a month, those...
