Loading Up and Shooting an Old Pinfire Lefaucheaux Shotgun

This beautiful old Lefaucheaux pinfire shotgun still has a lot of life in it. 

Just how does one load those long obsolete pinfire shotshells anyway?

Watch this video to see this vintage Lefaucheaux shotgun roar back to life.

Those old obsolete pinfire shells are quite different from modern shotshells. They can be reloaded though following the steps shown on this video. The shells loaded up with the correct amount of bird shot and black powder bring this old shotgun back to the range and the hunt.

If you have an old pinfire shotgun hanging on the wall in good shape take heart. It can still be useful on game just like it was back in the 1830s.
