My compliments

Schlitz 45
even though it may not be, my cup of tea, I really like your project, methodology and talent. I found the RamRod situation, rather interesting as it's got me thinking about how the old Buccaneers, handled this problem. I know that there were some old sidelocks that had separate ramrods. Going to have to do a bit on homework, on this one. ....

Very Nice and
Be Safe !!!!

Got a bit more done today-my Jolly Roger is epoxied in & started to get sanded down. I'm getting the rest of the stock's initial stain in black done along with the other inlays-then a lot more sanding before 2nd stain color goes on.

Every dog deserves on good bite !!!

That is very nice work and one that can be shared, for many years to come. Now then, at some point you will ask yourself; Shoot or don't shoot???

Let us know how she shoots.

What do you shoot with these things? Just fun stuff at 15 to 20 yds. or so
Pirates, Zombies and could be one heck of a weedwhacker. It really doesn't matter and sure would like to see it, on YouTube. ...

I’ll definitely shoot it. Probably just use .53 ball & patch-need some 28 gauge wads if I’m going to try shot. Having a hard time getting a good photo that shows the barrel colors & the abalone-thought some photos in daylight would help but they just don’t do it justice.

gorgeous!

That thing looks absolutely fantastic........a great job turning the rather odd kit barrel into a tube that seems much more proportioned, and the case hardening is an eye catcher too. The inletting, out of this world also..........

With shot, I wouldn't worry much about fitting wads myself. Charge, wad of tow, shot, and another wad of tow. Might experiment with cotton batting from a quilt shop.

I'd be most curious as to what load you might use.

I wouldn't know where to go to get some tow.
A shooter at WFVCC wads his odd gauge muzzleloader with newsprint.
