.58 bigger is deffinently betterI'm getting close to ordering a kit. Flintlock for sure. Lancaster or Colonial style. I haven't decided which kit or from whom, but that's not the point of this thread.
My question is, .50 or .54.
I'm not too concerned with historically correct calibers, but if I can get close, which one would it be? I'm leaning more toward the .54 because balls/patches are pretty easy to find, and I've never owned a .54, I read that the swamped .54's are lighter and are balanced better than the .50's.
Hit me with the facts.
Thats a good question.I like the carving you did on the stock. Did you do what came to mind or is there something out there that you used for inspiration?
