Just doing what I can for myself. I also enjoy teaching period skills to the young ones

It makes my front porch double as a shooting range and hobbyist cluttered mess.

I used bacon grease once for patch lube in my flintlock. I think my dog really liked it!
My shooting bench is on my front porch. I might should use bacon grease on my patches so my dogs would eat them and clean up all the shot up patches out of my yard. I’d guess they’d just poop them back out. I guess I could then retrieve them and start one of those “how to read my patches” posts!!

Bacon is salt cured, so I wouldn't use it as a steady diet. It does work, though.

Muzzleloaders mix with my dog, because every morning that I pick mine up she goes in the happy mode. We walk about 4 miles looking deer or turkey and kinda hoping we don't get one. Purchased a Seneca this year and that little rifle is a pleasure to tote.

In 1970 , my muzzleloading experience became a combination of three hobbies , m/l guns , m/l hunting , and m/l history. The first two parts of my m/l experience were in order , guns , then hunting with them. The final element has been Historical research in the form of reading original manuscripts from 1648 up to 1840. A lifetime of historical research , and experimentation with the mechanical aspects of muzzleloading guns ,has been enjoyable. Few people have had this kind of experience. I'm thankful to have been able to participate in this. I still do the occasional history presentation , and build a m/l gun or so , again just to gain the experience of how the particular gun functions , and how it fits into 18th century history. ..............oldwood
