CVA Yorktown Cannon Kit.
« on: February 29, 2016, 01:37:33 AM »
I built this 50 caliber cannon from a CVA kit that I found used on The Gun Works Muzzleloading Emporium's website.  It was a fun project and it is fun to shoot.

Now that looks like it would be fun to shoot. Is it a 32 cal or a 36 cal?

It is smooth bore.  I have set it off several times in the backyard with 25 grains of 3f with just paper wadding packed against the powder tightly.  I have not shot a patched round ball through it, only paper.  Paper packed tightly makes a good boom.

She handles very well.  It was fun to build and has been fun to shoot.
