Quote from: Sir Michael
A "sticky" to Larry Pletcher's analysis on touch hole location and priming powder positioning should be attached with it.
Here is  his site:
BlackPowderMag.com | Flintlock Rifles and Black Powder Guns

And further into it, here are his articles (not necessarily the ones from Muzzle Blasts) on vent liners:
Vent Liners | BlackPowderMag.com

~WH~

I'd take a look at these links Winter Hawk posted, and be sure to checkout the "Flintlock Videos" that Larry shows igniting powder.

Have no idea where Hawken's link led to? Perhaps he'll stop by and recall for us what it was.

When I click that link, it goes to a 404 or whatever. If you have the pdf, can you email or pm it to me?

Ah likes flintlocks, but any gun is good -- okay, guns that hurt to shoot aren't good.

Like wise.  I am having the same problem.  When I click on the link I get a code 404, and the page is not available??

My guess is that they changed their website and didn't tell anyone.

Okay, I GOT IT, but I had to do a google search for "Fast flintlocks by Fred Stutzenberger" just like so and it will give you a link that drops the pdf file (after looking at other stuff)
