I have an old CVA Kentucky rifle. It has a 1:66 twist so it stabilizes a .440 round ball with a .010 patch pretty well. Just to see how it would work I made some overshot wads out of heavy cardboard and stacked a couple felt wonder wads between 60 grains of 2F and 3/4 oz. of lead 4 shot. It is definately a challenge to swing that 33" octagon barrel on a clay but it sure is fun. It holds a pretty good pattern too.
Sometimes when I ain't using it for a shotgun I'll Jaegerball it.(pronounced yager as it was based on the German Jaeger rifle) That is push a .457 rnd ball down the barrel cutting rifling going in. It is very accurate but fouls the barrel pretty fast. Making it necessary to clean the rifle after every few shots so it isn't very practical.
