Springfield 1842 first shots.
« on: November 01, 2016, 06:39:36 PM »
Shot fair for using the wrong type ammo...

First shot with my recently purchased Armisport-made Springfield 1842 rifle-musket. Didn't have time to put together actual paper cartridges, and only had .69 round ball. Loaded it with patched round ball, using Goex CTG grade powder and CCI Reenactor musket caps. Shot off hand at around 35 yards or so.
