I shoot a .50 cal Hawkins percussion. Have been experimenting back and forth between shooting round balls and jacketed sabots with 90 to 100 grains of Pyrodex. Feel pretty confident shooting targets at 100 to 130 yards.
Which type of bullet do you prefer?
How many grains of powder do you shoot?
What range do you consider to be too far to shoot?
Yeah, I know in-lines are great and all, but I'm gonna stick to a traditional rifle. It makes me feel like Daniel Boone ;)
