My fascination for old War Time Artillery and Black Powder Weapons has been the inspiration to create this thread.
As I am learning I will try to catalogue some of the parts and some of how it’s done.
So far posts #2 & #5 is where I am listing what “I think I know”.
Please feel free to add information by posting or contacting me via pm.
GENERAL STEPS FOR LOADING OF MORTARS AND CANNONS I HAVE ACCUMULATED RESEARCHING AND WATCHING THE VIDEOS IN THIS THREAD
(See post #2)
PARTS OF A CANNON
(See post #5)
Many videos with historic and current information are in this thread, The best one IMHO is in post #38.
If you’re considering purchasing or making a mortar or cannon…my advice is to start small.
You will most likely go larger and the cost will go up.
Above all…be safe! Make family, friends and viewers stand at a safe distance.
Thought I would start an interesting topic with Mortars, Cannons, Black Powder Firearms, Weapons, Replicas…whatever you have, like, or want to use with Black Powder.
know very little about the topic, but I’m jumping in…having fun…and want to learn more.
“started” with a small Marine Grade Bronze black powder cork mortar made by B.N.A. in North Carolina.
“After 10 years of successful production the manufacture of new cork mortars is being spun down. As of late 2019 no further cork mortars are being crafted or sold by B.N.A.”
Anyone have something like this?
