Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference.

What sort of accuracy is something like that capable of - at what distance could you reliably hit a 2-litre Coke bottle with every shot?
The Brown Bess was something like 20MoA I think?

I would not want to comment on the distance for a coke bottle consistently br, but a caravan gas bottle at 15-20 yards with a steady hand & a patched ball. These were for close in self defence. Great fun trying the longer distances though :)
