While we're on the subject of new links, here is source that is not currently in the references:

CannonFuse.com

I buy all of my cannon fuse from them.

I thought i had Big Sky on the list. I guess I only thought I did, oh well over 50 years of age and suffering from Old Timers disease.

I'll get these posted later to day, first I have to go load some 577/450 cartridges and go shoot my Martini.

Got all the links caught up and posted. I thought you might like to see what the code looks like to post the "Where to find Blackpowder Cannons and shooting supplies" list. If you miss a square bracket or front slash it can be the devil finding it.


Code:
[b][list][size=18]Where to find Blackpowder Cannons and shooting supplies[/size][/list][/b]

List of suppliers of Cannons, cannon shooting supplies and materials for building your own gun, big and small taken from postings here on this board and found on the internet. 

Links are active.  Just click on any name and you will be taken to their website.  This is not an endorsement just a list of resources.

If you find one of these links dead, please drop me a PM.

If you contact one of these companies, be sure and tell them you found them on GrayBeard 's Blackpowder Mortar and Cannon Board.

[size=18][u][b][color=red]Warning and disclaimer:[/color][/b][/u][/size] Shooting cannons is not like shooting a big over sized muzzleloader.  There  is a completely different set of internal ballistics  involved.   Read up on cannon shooting before you acquire a cannon. Suggested reading is [b][i][u] THE MORE COMPLETE CANNONEER  By M.C. Switlik with selected excerpts from other artillery manuals[/u][/i][/b] 
The book can be order from these two suppliers.

What makes it worse is the little itty bitty window 2-1/2" wide to do all the editing in.

AND, if you have an extra 'enter' (end of line character) you don't notice it until it's posted.

I don't remember what it's called out here.

CRS syndrome maybe. Can't remember.

Here is a chart from Gibbons.

Ranges of Heavy Ordnance.-- Continued.
Kind of Ordnance.
24-rounder coehorn MORTAR Ball-Shell 17 lbs

Powder-Ounces---Elevation---Range Yards
0.50----------------" 45 00-------25
1.00----------------" 45 00-------68
1.50----------------" 45 00-------104
1.75----------------" 45 00-------143
2.00----------------" 45 00-------165
2.75----------------" 45 00-------260
4.00----------------" 45 00-------422
6.00----------------" 45 00-------900
8.00----------------" 45 00-------1200

With the Gibbon window open do a search on your favorite word, like mortar or powder. You will find some interesting reading.

I learned a great deal just searching the word Coehorn. Try it!
