Pietta Remington New Model Army blackpowder target shooting
For any interested. On THR they had a "cowboy/single action" 15-yard 10 shot challenge last month. These are my first sighting in shots and then 10 shots on target for score. Lots of fun!

Awesome ! A Uberti 1851 Navy Steel London Model is on my short list as well as a 1860 Army.

Good choices. The .36 navy has been most accurate for me so far. The 1860 army is my favorite cap and ball pistol.

More of an intro video but there's some shooting starting at 10:30 or so.

Colt navy .36 shooting starts 7:26 here https://youtu.be/BsYJviT9OTk

Here's another one of the .44 version https://youtu.be/AWtXTUrfg70

Cap and Ball revolvers are my first love.
Recently got back into these with a Cimarron, New Army 5.5" that I bought while visiting Texas Jacks Outfitters in Fredricksburgh Tx.

Fantastically accurate looking forward to a Colt Navy model next.

.457 Round Ball ( a little big) will try. 454 next.
25grns(triple Seven fffg), lubed felt wad, lube to keep it soft.

No filler.

Thanks OP for the videos . Over the years I’ve owned and shot a couple of Ruger Old Army’s but never a classic reproduction.
A LGS has an unfired Colt Reproduction .36 Navy in the presentation box . Beautiful gun . I think these were made in the late 1970’s .

What kind of range is that? It looks like an underground bunker.

Sort of is. 12x12 hardened reinforced concrete with ventilation, target runners, and backstop installed by Action Target
