See how they shoot:
This is one of the easiest and quickest methods. The charge can vary between 24-30 grains of blackpowder. The original civil war cartridges had 24-30 grain charge as well, and a 200-280 grain bullet. The diameter was a bit bigger then the size we use for today’s replicas. The original bullets were between .454-468, depednding on who made them.

Well this is my channel and these are my impressions about shooting old and repro blackpowder and cartridge guns. You will find target shooting, hunting, reloading and military history related videos here starring pre 1945 firearms. Since I was a little child I knew I want to be a history teacher. In fact I graduated as one. Later I studied military sciences on university level, and now I am doing my phd in firearms history while I teach military history at the university. That’s my life, my hobby. I hope you’ll enjoy my videos as much I enjoyed making them. Greetings form Hungary, the land of good wines and beautiful women. Oh yes, and please forgive my Hunglish. 😉
