We are not talking mixing cement in a Ming Vase, but shooting some powder in a very stout hunk of steel.
Common sense, of course with the load (I know a Swede who shoots 15grs), but the danged thing lost its virginity 152 years ago.

And the danged Swede tried 30 grs in an original English .60 flintlock pistol. The recoil caused a crack in the butt. Now mended and back to 15. Walnut gets brittle over the centuries.

Of course my repros will get the most shooting action, but I will shoot it occasionally. Getting antsy here, waiting for it to show up.
