wapitirod, I have a CVA Hawkins pistol that I used to run 90grns of Goex FFG, 490 patched round ball, #11 RWS cap. Might as well been throwing rock blind folded. Backed it down to 60grns and at 10 yards I could consistently split the ball on a axe head, and knock over steel targets at 50 & 75 yards. Got too lazy to clean it so I haven't shot it in years. Got more time in my life now think I'll have to dig that old bird out.
Everything before "but" is B.S.
wall tents, cots, fart sacks, cook your own meals, take care of your own game animals, sitting around a camp fire at night telling stories and building friendships. kind of roughing it instead of a lodge or hotel accommodations.
In the circles i run with we refer to that simply as tent camping, not primitive camping or hunting. It's my preference! Actually, it's all I've ever known.
