My favorite pistol

25 Feb 2019 02

Hi,
shooting my muzzleloader pistol makes me a lot of fun. About 20 years ago, without kids, I could afford getting me a handcrafted muzzleloader for target shooting. It's a Billinghurst replica, made by Tilo Dedinski, cal. 36.
I load it with .354 round ball (casted with my lee mould) and appropriate patches. I wet the patches with a mixture of 70% spirit, 29% glycerin and 1% dishwashing liquid. This keeps the barrel clean. I use 10grs of swiss black powder #2, which burns very clean.

Looks good. I liked your wad lube recipe. My friend shoots a flintlock pistol but hates the cleaning up.

Beautiful! I have a soft spot for the underhammer. I have one as well in .36, although it's a common rifle (Hopkins and Allen) here in the States. It is 'dead nuts' accurate out to about 110 meters before accuracy starts to degrade with a round ball. It was marketed as a Squirrel (Eichhörnchen) rifle here.

Noticed this hand made underhammer muzzel loader while on holiday.

Interesting, looks like the hammer is part of the trigger?

I'm not much into muzzleloaders, but the gun I shoot the most is my LeMat

It shoots like a 22 rimfire. 4 pounds of gun, a .44 cal round ball and 14 grains of powder. Just see how short that cylinder is!
