    We started this after I had read several posts on several forums about using BP revolvers for shot. We took a .36 remmie and bored the barrel and sleeved it back smoothbore. I got some really good patterns with both the dry loads and those held together with beeswax. This revolver is alot of fun, thanks to Kevin Wilfong for the hard work on this project, check it out...

    I'd like to see an accuracy comparison between the smoothbore with, bore diameter or aabout 1-2 thou over, and a rifled Remmy.

    I'm thinking a smoothbore .44 Remmy or Colt would be sweet.
    Not quite as awesome as the 20 ga Howdah, but impressive, nonetheless.

    Safety Nazi ninny says, "You pointed the barrel at the camera (gasp!!), and could have killed everyone who watched the video".
