    Park rifle

    Just picked up a pretty cased muzzle loading "park" rifle made by Parker Field & sons. Its a 54 bore. It has some accesories with it, oil bottle, nice ivory container for spare nipples & a tin box with original ball & bullets in.
    I was lucky to go to my odds & sods box in the shed & lo & behold there is a dixon nipple key that is a perfect match for it.
    I will now be looking for bullet mould for it, what else would it have needed?

    Patches, a turn-screw and a tin for percussion caps.
    The South of England has 2 good things, the M1 and the A1. Both will take you to Yorkshire.

    Looks like a powder flask is likely to appear, I do have a period tin of caps but they are musket caps so way too big, turnscrew i can make if i have to. bullet starter also, I have a small stock of ebony for such things.
