Just got a set of new leather gear for one of my Parker-Hale Musketoons. I'll need to put my caps in a little poke bag in the cap pouch so they don't fall out when I'm pulling one out. Otherwise I like having the pouch on the cartridge box strap.
40 1863 Pattern cartridges with a .575 sized Minie lubed with SPG, and 60 grains of Old Eynsford 1.5f. Making 1855 pattern cartridges with the extra paper for the powder cylinder isn't really necessary for range shooting.
I don't always need to go long to have fun, I fired from 10 yards and kinda snuck back to 50 at the wood line to pop off about 10 from a kneeling position.
Using cartridges is lots of fun, and way better than bringing loose components
These Musketoons are perfect all arounders, I pulled a few at 50 because that short sight radius is less forgiving. But these are such nice handling and pointing rifles.
I'm confident this load combo would perform at 100 and 200 from a sandbag rest
