Cap And Ball Develops a Hunting Load for His Original Caplock Rifle

So should that original fine black powder rifle just hang on the wall?

Our friend Cap and Ball feels you need to get that beauty back on the hunt.

Watch and see what patience and science comes in to making a great black powder muzzleloading hunting load.

Some gun collectors feel that a fine original antique rifle should hang on the wall. Others squirrel them away deep in a safe where they become “safe queens” never to see the light of day for years.

Cap and Ball feels that a great firearm should be used and enjoyed with care. His quest for a great hunting load for his original Miller Fa Baader & Sons Caplock Rifle is a journey that he documents very  well to a great success.

Patience and careful loading has yielded an incredible grouping from his fine old muzzleloader. This vintage beauty is ready to hit the game trails once again.
