PLEASE, PLEASE,PLEASE - Do not ever Shoot BRASS BARRELED BLUNDER BUSSES or PISTOLS. Brass ages into a Chrystalign Structure as ALFA brass.LARGE Chunks with no bond which can stand no very little separation pressure'BOOM-- FRAGMENTACION GRENADE..
Happy Chrumblemas and a Goodbox for the New Year.That means Cannons too unless they are TRUE BRONZE..
BEST WISHES ,OLD DOG..

Thank you Robin. I do NOT need a Brass Barrelled BLUNDERBUS.. I have worked with Copper / Zinc alloys all my working life and know what happens with aging. Most barrel would have been cast on the cheap from say 62/38% copper zinc. Good ones may be  70/30 % copper zinc. Best ones 70/20 with 10% tin ( This is getting near to BRONZE).If you can tell by looking O.K. but I would go to the nearest Brass founder and ask him to anneal your barrel at low temperature for a good period..  OLD DOG --(New Hip--py)
