Success In the Field

George is a student in our Arms Making workshop and has now built himself several rifles, returning year after year to perfect his skills. He is also an avid hunter who spends a lot of time in the woods working up the perfect load for his rifles. He recently harvested a doe using his Straight Rifled VA rifle that he built here at our Arms Making Workshop. Congratulations George!

“I had my Virginia Rifle ready as we hiked into the swamp, and 30 minutes later I shot a doe angling towards me at 25yds. She dropped in her tracks proving the effectiveness of a 54 cal soft lead round ball and the reliable accuracy of a Flintlock gun architected and configured by Cabin Creek Muzzleloading. Thanks for everything you guys are teaching me about 18th Century American Muzzleloading.” George Stiles
