I was hoping he would shoot it.

Right.
This IS a rather odd ball gun,and semi scarce at that.

Brings that boolit molds are about non existent,and we sure as F know what needs to be done then right.!  )L$ )L$

This lack of correct size boolits for this piece has simply brought it hasn´t been used as much as it really should,but that´s all going to change now. I´ll tell ya that much cause see....



Practical men often know other such. Practical men that is,and one of them in my case being Daniel. Daniel is a very avid shooter too,just modern stuff. IPSC.
..and see Daniel owns a rather competent NC machine. So. I´ve about bored him to death about that the Scandinavian black powder community NEEDS someone to produce molds - kind of like Tom of Accuratemolds in the US.
So.
We came to debate this back n forth and what it ended up..... Is that we´ve closed a deal as far as that the BP folk that needs a mold get in touch with me to wring all the wrinkles out from a tech POW and then i hand Daniel the blueprints for it and he..feeds the NC machine the aluminium blocks out of 6082 needed.



So yeah. That there is a "somewhat" close copy of the original spitzer boolit for the Swedish m/1851 chamber loader.



...which i came to try out yesterday at our "cannon event"/comps. Cannon as the day is saluted off...



..with a pound of powder outta that one...and closed...







By the brute use of yet another pound!  ->i ->i

Anyways. I´m happy as pie as this means i´ll get to use that chamber loader WAY more and what´s more all the assumptions made as far as measurements was dot on the money.
DAMN this is one hard hitting rifle!
We tried it out with that 625grain boolit at the range yesterday backed by 120 grains of 2F. Mark,this is a RIFLE. Not a smooth bore musket..
625 grains of boolit coupled with 120 grains of black gold..you feel. What´s more the entire county know´s that you did...  {:( )L$ )L$

Right now,as far as new molds coming up,i´m debating with Balazs of Cap n ball on historically correct boolits for the Austrian Wänzl.
In turn good friend Michael on boolits for his very scarce,and absolutely mint, 1880´s Jarmann bolt action Swedish made trials rifle...and the saga continues  (T^

Always good to see a cannon going off. We have a friendly competition shoot here which is opened with a shot from a 1892 mountain howitzer, called Howie, and is then fired on and off for the weekend, kids love it ....and the big kids as well
