7.62? How much bang do you get out of that?

Canada reduced the charge on our field guns from a 4 oz. black-powder load (not ever, no never, supplemented with steel wool!) to a .50 insert, and that's rather quiet.

Is the saluting piece in question fitted with that no-cocking-required breach I've seen on a few of your field guns?
