This is literally my second shot out of this ML. I had to order new nipples from Track of the Wolf. They had the exact ones. I touched up barrel and polished stock. Tested it with some cushion wads before letting shot fly. 60gr FFFG (all I have is pistol powder, I’m not diversifying now) 1oz #5 lead
20yds. I’ll work up an actual load one day.

This is left barrel, I’m not showing you right barrel because I was wearing a welding mask, gloves, ear muffs, two Carhartt jackets and flinched like a punk…

This is a cheap Indian SxS shipped over in 70’s. The barrel has been cut down to 21” but at open cylinder the full bore is a hair tighter than CB. I’ll let y’all know when I knock down some squirrels with it.
