Flintlock Smooth Bore Round Ball Test



This video was up earlier, but there was a typo in one of the charts, which I fixed.

This video is an attempt to find out what powder and loading method works best for round balls in a 20 GA smooth bored flintlock gun.

To determine that, I shot my Fusil deChasse with a variety of loads using both 2Fg and 3Fg black powder, and trying each load with both bare balls, and with two diameters of patched round balls.

The results were surprising.
