Badger5th I misspoke earlier when I said that the sighting was like the the 1903 ladder sight set in yardage, you and the rest are quite right that it is set in elevation not yardage!!! I guess craft is setting in ( can't remember ) now I did leave the rest out, don't need to be sent to the banned camp!!!!

I also do not like to use folks name on this forum without their permission, but you could be right about my builder. He makes one hell of a gun and carriage. When I feel confident in my abilities I shall try to shoot at one of the competitions...

Yours for the Cause!!!
Yeah, Jeff makes great stuff. It's almost furniture quality woodwork. But it takes a LOOOOONG time to get it delivered from him. We use him for wheel repairs and we budget one year to get the stuff back from him.

Come on up for the shoots! We shoot with the American Artillery Association. There are several videos of us shooting with the AAA on Youtube. Most of their shoots are in upstate NY (Westerlo and Worcester). We don't shoot with the NSSA because they require that all cannon team ALSO field an 8 man musket team. The 5th Mass are cannon cockers not dusthead re-enactors. We fought for YEARS to get this NSSA rule changed to allow cannon teams to enter their shoots without a musket team but they didn't change anything.

Regards,
Badger

Yea, I've been to the NSSA games in Gainesboro Virginia, such low loads and short yardage not much of a challenge in my humble opinion, but the liability is out of this world for a sanctioned shoot with full loads!!!!

Hope to see ya on the field soon!!!

Yours for the Cause !!!
