I’ve tried to find some information on a question with little success. Did folks in the 18th century and early 19th century use smaller sized round balls in rifles than us modern folks use? I’ve been experimenting some with smaller sized round balls in my riles than is normally used and like...
The smallest caliber muzzleloader I have is .45 and I usually shoot at less than 50 yards.
At what distances do you folks typically shoot .32, .36 and .40 caliber muzzleloaders? I’m only interested in these three calibers.
I was thinking about this past year and the shooting and hunting I've done. 100% of my hunting was done with a flintlock. Probably 98% of my plinking/target shooting was with a traditional muzzleloader. It got me to wondering, who all here shoots only traditional muzzleloaders?
Has anyone here ever swapped shooting from right hand to left or vice versa? I'm right handed and have always shot that way. However the last few years eyesight in my right eye is not as good as my left. I've shot some guns left handed but not my flintlock yet.
