    Hi Guys,
    I am a shooter from the UK (yes we can have firearms) and chanced upon this forum. I have just purchased a smoothbore muzzle loading shotgun, thought I would have some fun on the range with it.
    Will be looking for some expert answers to questions for you guys and gals.

    Markus its refreshing to hear from you .Your specs are a bit vaige its smooth bore but what is it and what bore ? And where are you in UK ,Why do you mention a range rather than a clay pigeon ground . Pardon my seeming to be nosey I don't live there anymore its gone nuts with silly laws but that's a common tale these days .But I do know a lot about muzzle loading in UK Regards Rudyard

    PS Don't mention Trafalgar Or Waterloo We don't want to upset Erwin, he's a fine Gentleman .

    Welcome!

    Most of my smoothbore action for the past 30 years has been muzzleloaders so I hopefully can point you along the proper path. Or at least help you avoid the mistakes I made.
