Carry this larger yet - the 24 pounders had a longer accuracy range than the 12 pounders, 6 pounders, 1 pounders, etc.

RB - I used to this the same about speed and smoothbores - accuracy and knuckle-balls.  I've found size matters as a 12 or 10 bore seems to be more accurate at 100 yards, than a smaller bore size.  My experience with 28 bore smooth bores is limited, though, very limited.  If a .54 can manage the 8" to 10" at 100 yards - on paper for 3 to 10 groups, I'd really like to see that.  The 12 will, and I've seen Taylor's 10bore do the same.
Makes sense...other than the occasional 100 yard tests just to see something, I've mainly lived my life at 50 yards for my woods hunting
