Rather deep rifling! And not much room for powder behind the patched ball, or length to develop much spin or velocity. I suspect a heavy wool coat would serve for armour. Taking time to re-prime would be interesting in that case if your now angry opponent was armed with a sharp pointy thing , or a nice cudgel. Aim for his eye from a foot away or you'll regret it. And you still might if you do...
