I just got a Wm. Cashmore 10 ga muzzle loader in the mail today from my brother with all the loading paraphernalia. He wants me to sell it for him. It's nicely engraved and heavier than my #6 frame Parkers. I think the barrels are about 39". It was made around 1852 and seems in great shape.
You could sure have fun stoning honkers with it.

Ive seen a couple 10 ga sxs muzzleloaders on gunbroker with over 35" barrels .
You could look there to get a idea perhaps on value . Im not sure now if I am going to fire this 8 ga ml . If I end up with a 8 gauge cartridge sxs I probably wont ever shoot the ml .

Milton,
Thanks. I'll take a look on gun broker. I haven't even gone through the accessories box yet.
If I keep it around here long enough I might even shoot it this duck season.

You can search through here https://www.gunsinternational.com/gu...c758_p1_o6.cfm

Theres a few long double 10 ga percussion guns .
I wish my 8 ga muzzle loader was legal for duck and geese , would be interesting to see it used like it was in its day . Besides the 16lbs of mass it does shoulder quite well .

I may add some other sxs muzzleloaders to the collection in the future just so the 8 ga isnt lonely haha .

Does anyone make an 8 to 10 (or 12) gauge reducer?

Charlie knows where you can buy them I think he uses 12 ga shells in his 8 ga .
The company I bought my 10 ga to 16 ga adapters went out of business . They made anything between 4 ga to 410 .

I take it you have a 8 ga cartridge gun ?

I'm sure Briley makes chamber inserts.
Wilkinson probably does also.

Could just wait for RSTs 8 ga shells they are working on .
The gauge mates I had would always stick in the chambers on my 10 ga .
.I figure that just because of the wider tolerances the old shotguns have .

Guess I should have read the part about "Muzzle Loader" more carefully

I would ask Charlie though he uses some 8 ga to 12 ga adapters I believe .
gaugemates used to make 8 ga adapters but I think they went out of business .
