And I shine the brass on my rifles about once a month... I like them of shine and never found it a problem with spooking game animals. Each their own. I know one person changed it all over to iron furniture. Actually it looked real nice.
Nice looking Hawkin type......I'd stick with the non-breakable ramrod for hunting tho. Break the wood ram rod when out hunting and yer dun 'til U find a new one. What twist does TC use if that is what it is? I'm in the "let the brass get dull club" but some aren't.......& I like 1:66 for round ball loads.
I am jealous. I had one with a flintlock, but it wasn't a T/C. May as well start ringing the dinner bell whenever I took it into the woods. Wow, it was a shooter with 385 gr conicals or round balls. Borrowed my buddy's inline last season, and it just wasn't the same. And....oh my goodness (just remembered)..... he has a 3-9 scope on it, and at low power I couldn't find the vitals on a deer through brush at 15 yds while hunting on the ground. I'll be saving up to get another traditional muzzleloader probably with a percussion sidelock this time. Let us know how it shoots........ nice choice
