Some follow-up on previous testing :

Now, shooting duelist at 25meters :

40grs BP, 100grs cornmeal and wet patched 650 ball.



This time I did not encounter difficulties with irregular loading : the pressure on the ram was regular all along the session; maybe because of better selection of patch (still trouser denim but selecting regular thickness : previously I used whenever part of the trouser and knee were thinner than elsewhere !!) or because of more cormeal ? still mysterious.....

This is a Sikligar product made in Udaipur, India.

A lot of fun to shoot........ and all balls punched the paper (maybe less one) : not ridiculous for a bigbore smoothbore pistol !!

I have always admired the swiveling ramrod designs for sea service and cavalry that the Brits came up with.Clever, and practical.
