250-Yard Flintlock Rifle Shooting

I've always been interested in re-creating the long-range shooting accomplishments of America's Revolutionary war era riflemen, and this year's Historic Camp at Springbrook gave me the opportunity to shoot at 250-yard distant targets with a flintlock rifle.

In the video you'll see long range shooting, as well as the rifle, the load and the aiming techniques that got the job done.

I hope you like it. Let me know what you think.

Man are you a terrific shot.
