OK I appreciate I am new to the forum but I figured the Shotgun and Muzzleloader sections needed a "pick-me up"

Its either round balls or shot (very small round-balls!)

Here's another one. 14 bore. Like the previous one I posted it fires the .695 roundball quite well, but now on the wall. Maker - Burrow of Preston (built around 1814) . Last time I used it my dog put up 5 teal. They all sprang straight up through the trees and set off , line astern crossing in front of me. I gave plenty of swing and lead on the bird at the front. Pulled the trigger. The last teal in the line fell from the sky!!! Gotta give those front stuffers time to discharge!

Nice thing about a flock, sometimes you get very interesting feedback.

How fast is the shot coming out of that beast?

Love to see an note by another RB shooter. Lots of punch in a .695 ball, even at modest velocity. Hard to stop 480 grains. BTW...........is it a caplock converted from a flint? Just ask cause most people think Burrow was the name on guns from Preston made 1833-41. While he did make them earlier at the same site, he listed his name as Burrows up to 1822, and they were flints..........Restarted again in 33 with the caplock. They are nice guns.....................thanx for the foto.....................................FWB

Don't think a conversion, maybe it was made later than I thought.

I shoot a 1200 fps low recoil load .690 round ball from my shotgun and it puts hole right through a 6x6 and just keeps on going.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
