Thats good news Mtn Man you are a rank amature in black powder. I think you got your black powder knowledge from magazines not shooting. Any time you want to compare numbers of State shoots you are registerd in let me know.

Actually I'm a black powder range officer with the wachusett mountainmen and I shoot every weekend and at Atleast 6 bp shoots per year as well as build and repair bp guns and attend re-enactments and rendezvous. You my friend would not be welcome on my range. Do us all a favor and go load up a .75 cal damascus barreled smoothie with 75 grains of 3f and pop one off. And remember ball, patch ,powder.

Oh and I've also taught women how to handle black powder though the nra's Women on Target program.

I wouldn't. if you're stuck with 3F powder, I'd use it for priming powder.

I will not be standing around you when you shoot your musket with 3F powder. it might not blow it up now or later, but eventually the higher pressures will damage and eventually blow your gun up. this is like shooting 5.56 in a .223 barrel, the cartridges are nearly identical, but if you shoot the 5.56 in the .223, it's higher pressures will stress the metal of the gun and potentially and eventually make the barrel fail and rupture.

I should have known a "Rondy" guy. Who in hell is shooting wrapped iron barrels? Range officer at Rondy shoot. Go ahead spread the old wives tales and run more people away from black powder shooting.

As for the pattern, I could care less. It'd serve more as a blunderbuss anyway. The barrel is rated at around 30,000 psi so I'm not too concerned of it stressing, I'll also only put maybe 90 grains in it at most. I want to use 3f because it fouls less, has a little higher fps compared to the same charge of 2f in my relatively short barrel, & to use it in conjunction with my pistols.

amazing, you ask a question and completely ignore what the people with experience are telling you, you deserve a darwin award.

Sorry to hurt your feelings. I'm curious if using it is typical among guns of the same caliber. I'll refrain from offending you in the future.

Its good see you know your firearms. These barrels are proof tested with heavy charges of smokless. As you stated the 4140 Chrome Moly barrels can take 30,000 CUPs no problem. Who would think anyone today would sell barrels that would blow up because of the shift in one granulation of powder? The statement here that a Demascus would blow up, doubtful? But who in the hell shoots them anymore? These "Rondy" guys are very poor people to ask about anything that isn't in an old Davy Crockett movie.
