17 Pdr Blank fire

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing. Has anyone anymore pictures from the event as was looking forward to seeing some. Unfortunately too much on that weekend for me to be able to pay a visit, maybe next year.

Hi, The charge was 1/2lb of pyrodex fired by a shotgun primer with cardboard and a twist of green grass as wadding. The wadding is all important to get a good bang! I will ask Mr Shopland to post some more pictures of the event as it was a really good weekend, relaxed, great company and lots to see!


More firing pics below but poor quality I am afraid.
