Ihave an old blackpowder rifle in 54 cal that I would like to turn into a shotgun leaving the rifling. Has anyone tried this? And what kind of pattern does it throw?

The pattern will probably look like a big donut, with little or no shot in the center, and get bigger the further you get from the gun.

Rifling will spin the charge and it will head away from the line of sight as it exiits the bore.

You could certainly try it, but don't expect much. Probably loose shot would work better (?) than modern 1-piece wad.
