    My youngest son bought me two boxes of brass shells for my 12 gauge double Black Powder under-locking lever shotgun. Now I have some hand loading to do! Bring on the Zombies!

    That was going to be my question about this black power shotgun, round balls or slugs. In the past, it was round balls. Was told about them when I was a little kid; never saw any. Looking forward to watching your video.

    The barrels of your black powder shotgun, are they Damascus twist?

    I've read that you make your own black powder, so I'll not ask about the use of Pyrodex. There's a road near where I'm from called "Powder Branch Road". Back in the 1700s some lady lived up in that hollar that made black powder using bat guano she gathered out the many caves in that region -- limestone rock formations have many caves, water erosion over the millennia and all. Our 30th high school reunion was up in that hollar (skipped the 40th); didn't see any historical markers.

    I just this minute looked this topic on the web. I FOUND AND ARTICLE ABOUT HER!!! I never knew this stuff! Wow, I'm blown away! I heard it by word of mouth. Holy crap am I ever happy!!!!!!!!!! yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee hawwwwwwwwwwwww
