Firing a 10-Bore Flintlock Rifle (Video)

A while back I had the opportunity to hit the range with Mike Carrick, Q&A Editor for Arms Heritage Magazine (a very cool magazine, by the way). The main purpose of the trip was to work with a reproduction Ferguson rifle, but Mike also brought along his hunting rifle. Well, one of them. Specifically, a 10-bore flintlock – a gorgeous copy of a 1790s British sporting rifle. So, I took the chance to ask him about it and touch off a round myself. The thing is a beast!
