Took my new purchase, an Indian 1733 .62 cal smoothbore flinter out last week. Fun but frustrating! Had lots of non firing issues. I could see sparks coming off the frizzen even with sunglasses on, but not lighting the powder in the pan. tried 4Fg and Cartridge grade Goex, didn’t seem to make any difference. I’m doing some reading on making locks more reliable. Accuracy was pretty crappy for the most part, but I honestly think that was due to my frustration over reliability. I had three of ten shots fairly close to point of aim, so I’ll consider those the ones I had a good trigger pull on. Definitely need some more experimentation! I have some wads and a bullet mold on order and a good bit of pure lead to cast up. I’m also looking forward to trying some shot loads, but that will come with reliable ignition.
