660-grain slug at over 1,500 feet per second.  That's gonna put a hurtin' on something.

    So if this is a ten bore, remind me to never shoot a four bore or  two bore.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Stick to regular loads, and they are not bad at all.

      Won't be too bad.   That's a freakin' cool gun.

    So heavy I don't think it'd kick bad, my .69 flintlock shoots a 450? roughly grain ball with 100 grains of powder.      It's less than a .22 almost.


      Goldang though......10 bore....nice.

      Samuel Baker of the Victorian era of British empire had a 2-bore muzzleloader....a HALF POUND ball....he named it "Baby" and admitted that it was too severe for even him to some degree. lol.

    Shoot some Remington Express 405 grain SP rounds. Nice rounds that aren't thumpers.

    I'd love to shoot that thing.  If someone brings around a heavy recoiling weapon I'm usually the first one to want to try it.  I'm weird like that.

    I stumbled across Forgotten Weapons on you tube a while back and I think I've watched every one now.  Excellent channel worth subscribing to.
