I can tell you how it does - It "does" ugly. It's a BEAST, even with 'mild' 10 ga loads of 80 grains (by volume) of black powder! From what I read on the internet, a "standard" 10 ga load is 120 grains of BP. OY!

The problem is that it was built as shotgun, not a rifle. As such, the stock configuration bucks right into your face if you put your head down on the comb in order to AIM it. (Aim a rifle, point a shotgun.) You don't put your face down on the comb to shoot a shotgun. Since I have the .58 cal Zouave, I am inclined to use that for "bullets" and keep the 10 gauge for ML shotgun use.

BUT... I AM going to cast some more 10 ga (~.75 caliber) RB. "Just in case..."
