    Graf black powder accuracy

    I tried Grafs and Swiss in my 54. Shooting bench rest at 25 yards I did not see any real difference between the 2 powders.

    Danger of rapid firing?

    Nice. I don't see many people with a Blunderbuss. Did you build it or ? I built mine from parts from several companies. I have a 75 caliber with a 14 inch barrel. I have never tried to load fast. I have used lead shot and also a 75 caliber round balls.

    Using a Patch Knife.

    Not sure how good of a picture this is. The patch material has been lubed and placed over the barrel and the ball driven flush with the barrel. Then I pull up on both sides of the patch material and use my patch knife to cut material flush with the barrel.

    Pressure difference betwen Swiss and Goex

    Wow. Nice setup! I just got Swiss 2f for my 54 caliber. I have not had time to test it out. What chronograph do you have. Is it not effected by the black powder blast?

    NMLRA fighting

    I joined last year. I don't regret it one bit. I spent 3 days in Friendship last June for the National matches. Fun place, great people and so many vendors on commercial row.

    First Flinter?

    Wow. I have only emailed them twice and both times Katherine responded in a few days. I was hoping to see them at the CLA show but I did not make it to the show.

    First Flinter?

    I would offer up a thousand dollar plus kit to a newbie. I believe anyone with basic skills can assemble a Kibler kit! I built a Kibler Colonial. I would say the hard part of the Kibler kit was 95% finished. Now I am working on a kit from another company. I would say the new kit is 60% finished...

    Iron butt plate help

    Thanks to everyone for all the great replies. I believe the buttplate is cast steel. I purchased it from Pecatonica River Long Rifle Supply with the stock. I could have paid for them to fit the buttplate but I am trying to learn how to do it myself. I was panning to file out the casting sprue...

    Iron butt plate help

    Please see attached photos. I assume I would need to inlet this stock so that the butt plate is flush with the wood. Seems like a lot of work with a chisel. How do you guys do it? Thanks for the help, JD
