Hello Folks -
Haven't done much on the large 1812 Cannon lately, but did come across this in a long forgotten box.
Would like to fire it off, but I have no experience with these guys. Last BP I fired was a .75 Brown Bess. Any thoughts on type & amount of powder, and do you use a fuze or just powder in the touch hole?
I think I have some #2 & #4 powder, but will have to check to be sure what they are.
Thanks for any suggestions and or directions.
