I going old school


Recommended Posts

I’ve been shooting my .54 cal tc renegade patch/ball a lot to the point I ran out of blackMZ powder. I found out alliance stopped making it, so I picked up a few pounds of goex ff and was shooting it tonight. 90gr. And I didn’t have to move the sights at 50yrds. It’s a little dirty but I’m ok with that.

These where the fist to shot from my shooting sticks at 50yrds.


Everything but the primers(209 adapter) is old school if I find the time I’m switching that out too.

Love it ....

By chance is it a kit one, my dad has a 1984 kit one at his house . Hoping one day to dust it off ..

No it's not a kit.I got it off armslist the guy said it was his fathers he used it during the shotgun season on long island.It had a scope mount still in the package,but i'm holding out on that until my eyes really crap out.I did forget to mention I put a set of williams fiber optic sights on it,definitely made a difference.

Just about every firearm I have that has open sights have been converted to fiber optic type sights, for old eyes especially in low light conditions they are better I think.

Nothing like old school hunting, good luck on the upcoming season.

my hope is to go cap and ball all season. My Lyman .54 Great Plains rifle is to be the main gun, but in good weather I hope to use my Pedersoli GPR flintlock as much as possible. Two weeks to go for NT ML season!

I'll be up for the week with my .54 cap/ball and my line .50 for foul weather.I'm going to hunt the state park in the morning and my property in the evening hopefully the bear i keep seeing down by my pond shows up.

Good luck!!!
