Got out today and shot. Hit right where I was aiming, need to aim better! It was a little cool out, but good day to shoot.

25gr fffg.
.350 roundball.
.015 pillow ticking cut at muzzle.
Mink oil lube.
.36 caliber LH flintlock, 44" barrel.

Erwan, the rules are for rifle and pistol, so your good to go with the pistol's.
just don't embarrass us by out shooting us rifle shooters! :D


Erwan, les règles sont pour le fusil et le pistolet, donc votre bon d’aller avec le pistolet.

mais ne nous embarrassez pas en nous tirant dessus avec des tireurs à la carabine!

@jackpine54 How's your accuracy with that sized load? My 36 seems to love 35 grains and shoots great so I've never tried one that low.

On a good day, off a rest I can get .75" groups at 35 yards. That's about as far as I can see a small target. My rifle shines at 25 grains and 40 grains, but 25 is cheaper and enough for squirrels and rabbits.

That's interesting. I'll have to do some experiments. All things considered, I love my 36 for shooting and hunting.
