Re: Ever see a flintlock in slow motion?
Hate to say it but back in the day they did NOT use a seperaate grade of powder in the pan than in the barrel. They primed from the horn with the same powder the loaded the load with. The standing orders of a company of the line is to prime pan, pour powder down barrel, ram ball home, and make ready to shoot. Yes they primed the pan first since they wee using paper wrapped loads so the had to prime the pan from the powder in the load first. Yes it was dangerous. I shot a LOT of flint locks, I will shoot up to 200 pounds of powder per year, I always prime with what I load with with as they did in day of old. If you want to watch a slow one, watch a hi speed viedo of a wheel lock!
