Cappers and Bags

Postby hanshi » Tue May 17, 2011 12:26 pm

A couple of leather cappers I made a while back. I've since made cuts on the musket capper which made it work more smoothly. Also made another small capper since then and all really work the way they should.

An antler tipped ramrod I made for my smoothbore. Made them for the .45 & .50, too.

Two bags I made a couple years ago. Amateurish but functional. Will do better next time.

Here's an updated pic of the cappers. Notice the cuts on the thick, musket capper.

Image

The two bamboo measures on the left are 70grns and 80grns. The double ended antler measure is 60grns on one end and 40grns on the other. Actually the far left one throws two charges as well, 70grns from one end and 35grns from the other.

The making of accessories is possibly what i enjoy most outside of shooting. While I'm not (and will never be) very good at it, doing so is extremely satisfying. I do learn, though.
