    If u. Can?t find one here try Tanner mounds. Inexpensive and any size
    When in doubt, mumble, when in trouble, delegate.

    Dixon's in Kempton usually has bags of .672 if you need some in a hurry. I bought some there around a month ago. Call them first though, assuming you're close enough. Track Of The Wolf all has them, but they kill you with the shipping costs.

    Not quite close enough. Unless I'm in the area. I did check out Track and two others that carried them. You are right, the shipping costs were pretty high for all. I have 56 rounds. Should be enough for the match. just don't have any to practice with. Just got the musket and have no idea where it is at 50 yds. 25 was pretty good. Scored a 38 with the three sighters and 5 rounds for score.


    FYI Being that I am the only member on my team shooting smoothbore, I will looking for a team to shoot with. Give me a holler if you don't mind a rookie. 56th PVI

    What gun you shooting?
    Repop or real or custom barrel?

    If you find you are short pre measure some powder for loads abd carry your lube.
    Pick up spme rounds at nationals or borrow some round balls and work the loads up there.

    I shoot repop and it uses a 678 ball so little larger than you are asking.

    I was sorry to tear of his passing. He was a great person to work with in customer satisfaction.
    If you let me know what powder lube and if you rough up the balls ill make you up 50 rounds. What is your bore size? I use 672 and have 678. Personally I use a roughed up 672 1 coat alox 60 grn 3F goex in a hoyt 678 bore. Don?t know if we need anybody.
