  5. Part 3

    My dad filmed me shooting my rifle. Got to love the smell of pyrodex in the morning.

  6. Part 2

    My dad and I shot my rifle at a 50 yard range. Neither of us have shot black powder before, so it was a bit of a learning experience. The top picture is my target after the first few rounds.

    The bottom two pictures are from a shooting contest between my dad and I. My target is on the left, and I used shooting patches. I got 2 on the outside of the bulls eye and one above and to the left. My dad, right side, did not use shooting patches (.495 ball) and hit a bulls eye and to the bottom right, with his third shot at the very bottom.

  7. Part 1

    So my .50 caliber Kentucky Rifle (percussion cap) from a Traditions “Build it yourself” kit is finally done and range tested. 

  8. gonna be shooting my blackpowder rifle for the first time today (or ever). let’s hope i don’t blow my face off with an improperly loaded charge
