    Wtb - front stuffer black powder

    So after a front stuffer. Must be percussion.

    Can be pistol or rifle. Apart from that, open to anything.
    Just have this need, to have a black powder something. Not after a cartridge based job.


    Anyone have something?

    Good on ya! Trust me, you'll be a changed person after shooting BP. @Maca49 is probably one of the better ones to know of anything around.

    Do you want a replica or original? I don't own a muzzle loader, bloody hate stuffing the barrel, I like them hanging on the wall! I have cartridge rifles, mostly carbines, I'll ask my mate tomorrow, failing that the antique arms auctions and shows are a great way to obtain one. There's an auction in Wellington next month and the Tauranga gun show is the 20/21 August
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    I have done I\a bit, but it was a long time ago.
    The favourite was a 2 person event. 1 with a solid and 1 with shotgun. A baby milk food can filled with water and lid hard pushed on, with a empty drink can (beer) on top. The person with the solid hit the milk can, and the one with the shotgun had to hit the beer can before it hit the ground. bloody great fun.

    Also my best mate double charging and couldn't figure why the ball wouldn't seat. And his old man, calling him a few choice words, then proceeds to fire it off.



    Don't want a original,(I want to shoot it and not worry about it) Its a more for enjoyment, than anything else.
    Thanks for the ideas. Will look into both
