Hi Charlie,

Given that the gun is built with very robust barrel dimensions, I'm going to load a brass shell to whatever max FFg black powder it will hold and still handle the requisite fibre and card wads topped with a spherical ball on top. 2.4" shell length. I'll probably play with the volume a bit for best pattern but that'll be the plan. If it will kill deer at 35 yards and I can still use it for upland, that will be ideal.
