Team, I own one of Pedersoli's copy of a Brown Bess. I enjoy hunting with and shooting that firearm much. I've really enjoyed developing shot loads and round ball loads along the way. I'm now considering picking up a fowler (yikes they can be expensive). Aside from form/handling, does a fowler offer anything over the Bess, like tighter patterns with shot (assuming a choke is used). From what I've read, it seems the folwer will handle "quicker/lighter"....both very subjective terms/ideas. I guess I'm looking for input/confirmation that it makes sense to buy another smoothbore in addition to my Bess. Thanks so much for your thoughts and input!
