Personally, I have been portraying a Royal Scot since 1990, yet I have never owned a brown bess musket. I only own a French Charleville. Can 95% of the public notice from more than 5 feet away. No! Can they notice from 500 feet away if I have white pants and everybody else has grey? ABSOLUTELY!
How many re-enactors have noticed that I didn't use a Bess? Probably not
This is just my personal opinion.
Let the moose droppings hit the fan now.
