    It took a bit longer than I had planned, but then I had not planned on having to buy a new pickup, either. :eek:

    Pietta New Navy .44 cal. Purty, ain't it? :D:D:D Snow mixed with freezing rain here, so first firing will have to wait for awhile. :(

    I don't have a cannon, so don't have any Fg (anymore.) I do have some FFFg and some FFg, but have discovered the difference between the two. FFg makes the stump come out of the ground. FFFg makes the stump sprout wings. :D:D:D

    Congrats, Pops. Be sure to give us a report when you do fire it.

    I've had it out twice, now. No targets to show off, yet, as I was shooting clay pigeons. Took me less time to clean off the powder residue than #3 son's drool. :D

  10. Pops, what charge weight are you using for it, at least so far?

    I used 25 grains with a wad and round ball the first time, but the ball would just barely compress the powder with the rammer. I then switched to 30 grains and feel a bit more comfortable with that.

    I just got my LEE mold for the conicals and will get to those pretty soon. All I have to do is find that durn round toit.
