bounce Been shooting black powder since 70's whin pard & i got inta slinger fastdrawing as a hobbie.
While still prefure the flint & petcussion (old school), age has played its part...
In-lines are more accurate & forgiving with the eyes & steadyness of age...
Still prefure the .45's but they tough ta find, & ones have found are way outa me $$$ price range...
Had bought a bolt action whin first got back... Price was right, but rifle had looked like no one had cleaned it.
So run brush threw for hour or so. Thought had it looking okay.
Gave little oil, then pard bought his break over. We went chooten..
1st round twas tough seating. & each got tougher.
Shot that day, cleaned therolly. We shot next day. Same...
Then cleaned & light oil, set it up.
Last week we did some chooten. Me barrell twas all messed up..
Didnt even try loading.
So yesterday went looking. Found this got 10%discount.
bounce we twas like two kids last night, talken bout old days, comparing rifles..
He has same except steel barrel.. & planning on friendly target sight in & this years deer hunt.

Tis all 4 now...
As pappy say's :
Keep your head held high & your powder dry...
Stay Safe...

Looks like a good time!


The secret to a long life is to try not to shorten it.

White Falcon, cheers Thank you sir... Tis a tad bit proud...
Dang thing kick like a mule... bang me shoulders not holden up..
Always like the .45 over the .50 cal.
Tis gonna reduce the load for target, put on scope...
Get it zerroed in... Had taken hog with me .45 Kentucky using messure for me .44 revolver.
Roughly 22grs. .440 round ball.
The rounds for the .50 are heavier. Yet be using 50grs powder. .
Gonna do some tests... Shots will be close range.. If dont feel comfertable with results..
Kick powder (pellets) up ta 80gr a 50&30gr..

Truely would like ta hear thoughts...
Not sure wieght of the .440 ball,, surely lighter than the .50 cal propellants but 50gr twice as 22gr.
Hogs tougher, thicker hide..
Again, starting with 50gr, easier on shoulder, less flinch for sighting in..
If need push ta 80gr for hunt...

Twas using 100gr, Tripple Se7en pellets with these, forgot wieght, & type.
Came with rifle.
Pard has basicly same rifle, except steel barrel, has best luck with power belt..
Thoughts ? Thanks for updates in the public hunting section... Miss hunting it...
Ya'll have way more options...
Tactical Cowboy,
cheers pard & i been doing friendly shooten since the slinger fast draw days in the 70's...
Always a good time...
Tis planning a muzzy deer hunt...
Keep your head held high & your powder dry...
