Took both my Springfield Trapddor and Martini-Henry to Schutzenfest. Went through 75 rounds of 45-70 and 37 rounds of 577-450. That was a lot of smoke.
Used 65 grains of Fg black powder in the trapdoor and 85 grains of Fg in the M-H. Made the gongs react rather violently when I managed to hit them. A great time to say the least. :grin:
