    Ball seating question?

    So ever since I got hooked onto traditional (early 2000’s) I read lots on the how to’s with this new to me concept. One thing that has me scratching my head is ball seating (even conical as I’ve seen). I ram the ball down the bore until I feel it touch the powder and stop. I do give a slight...

    My new percussion /flintlock

    Well it seems that enough sighs and hints finally paid off. You see my big Bro had an extra Pedersoli Frontier in 50Cal percussion that wasn't being used. After several chats he finally gave in and said if I can get a flintlock action from somewhere he'll give me his spare percussion Frontier...

    TC Firestorm for Christmas

    There it was all nicely boxed up and placed under the tree. I've always wanted one regardless of how modern it looked and operated. I'm extremely overjoyed and can't wait to make some smoke with this puppy. PS: I placed it under the tree the eve before but I still acted suprised as I did when I...

    Cabela's flintlock 50

    Anyone have any experience they'd like to share with this model. I understand that they are an Investarms muzzleload and this one in particular closely resembles the Hawken style bp gun. There is one for sale in the classifieds up here on a Canadian forum. He/she is asking $425 obo. Thx in advance.

    My new Pedersoli. 32 Frontier

    Took my new flintlock shooting today for my first time ever. I was limited to 15 yds. My first four shots were about 4" low and fired off a rest using 30grs Goex fffg and of course 4f for the priming pan. The next three shots were from the kneeling with 40grs of powder and aimed at the top of...

    Percussion or Flintlock

    Well its time for yet another frontstuffer and this time in a long awaited .32cal. It will be a Pedersoli but I can't decide on whether a Frontier flinter or a Pennsylvania Dixie percussion? I'm unsure if I'm ready to jump into the flintlock waters yet?

Barrel & metal parts were...
