So my dad just finished building me this 1750'ish German Schimmel styled .50 cal. muzzleloader specifically for hunting larger game… mainly will be used for hunting whitetails in Michigan.

I’ve collected SEVERAL patch thicknesses, .50 cal. ball sizes & have both FF & FFF powders to see what it’s going to like load-wise… It has a VERY nice $$$ barrel so my hopes are high that with the right load she’s gonna be a tack-driver!

Here’s a few pics of the new beast! (Yes my dad also made the pouch & powder-horn/scrimshaw!)

Very cool. I shot a black powder match a few months back. Took 7th... have nothing but respect for those guys. That was tough.
