Hey folks, I posted some photos in the "other rifle" thread, but I now have some videos.
Thought y'all might enjoy some old school firearm porn.

The opportunity presented itself that this rifle was up for sale for $150.
Well crap. :roll: I can't pass that up, I'd be stupid.
Of course, I was unaware there's another couple hundred in various "things" required to load, fire, operate, and clean it.

It's SOOOO much more finicky that the two VEPR12s I've had. :lol:

I've been learning the finer points of how to care for such a beast, that today I just got comfortable with the idea of firing it, and cleaning it afterwards.

So... Here's some video for ya.
I ran 50 grains of powder, 100 grains and 120 grains with .54 caliber "roundball".
Here's the .54 caliber Hawken in action, my back yard, and my fat belly.

50 grain:

100 grain: BOOM :shock:

120 grain:

Going back in time just a bit,.... The house was empty, the family was gone for the day.
Thought I'd have a couple beers and spread this ordeal across the kitchen table.
This is how the video madness started. This was before I fired a shot.
Like a child opening his Christmas presents.....
