...for effective 35 yard small game patterns from a cylinder bore flintlock Tulle Fusil de Chasse.

    On the other hand, don't think a 20 gauge flintlock Tulle Fusil de Chasse won't deliver the goods at 50 yards with lead ball.  In this case with patch, paper, or tow (flax) wads.

    Interesting.  He's pretty good with that smoothbore.
