Default .40cal Flintlock Squirrel Rifle

I don't know how it could be much more accurate...sitting in a chair picking off empty .12ga hulls at 30 and 40 yards...a squirrel rifle to die for.

TC Hawken Flintlock stock
GM .40cal 33" x 1:48" Flint barrel
30grns Goex 3F
.015" prelubed cotton patch
Eddie May/GA .395" cast lead balls

An outstanding combination of components in this Flintlock.

At 5:30am yesterday it was 59* cool, clear, calm, low humidity...the range session was one of those where it seemed if you just got the muzzle in the general direction of the target the balls would just find their way into the bullseye like they were laser guided...3 hen turkeys with their '07 broods wandering around the range a couple hundred yards out...just a terrific early morning to be up and about

Default RE: .40cal Flintlock Squirrel Rifle

That is the same barrel I have considered for my small game caliber. A .32 or .36 caliber, which nice just does not appeal to me as much as that .40 caliber. Besides that, (not that I would)I think the .40 caliber is actually legal in some states to hunt deer.
