I meant my 54 cal Hawken. It weighs close to your Hawkim I bet, but pushing a bullet as big as a 300 grain mini ball with 250 grains of black powder to bring down a Bison tends to sting the shoulder.

I must say though that shooting one of those puts a great big smile on your face, once all the smoke clears.

That’s my mistake, I misunderstood. That’s a big ball with some considerable powder behind it. I bet it’s a party. I think it’s a very attractive looking weapon.
I have a 405 grain bullet for my single shot, and it’s about the lightest bullet available. I’ve been told you can go over 500 grains for a 45-70. How accurate that statement is I’m not sure. Basing it strictly on what I’ve been told.
A customer mine has a gun range at his house that I plan on going to when it gets consistently warmer out. Several people will attend and I plan on bringing everything. I’ve asked a friend of mine to come who’s more than twice my size weight wise. He’ll let me know if something is too rowdy or not. My biggest concern is I don’t want to drop any of the weapons. Especially my military ones.
Any other interesting members of your arsenal?

And yes the conical bullets that I use in the Hawkens and the 44 Navy colt are 400/450 and 200/250 respectively. I only use 150/175 grains of black powder in the Hawkens with conical bullets because of accuracy and pain. I use 20/25 in the Navy. Could use up to 40 but just don't find it necessary. When I shoot black powder in my 1873 45 those are 200 or 250 grain lead RNFP full loads and they make a big bang with lots of smoke. But what a mess to clean up. Most of the time I shoot 250 grain lead RNFP cowboy rounds in it. That pistol is designed for modern rounds. The smokeless powder is SO much cleaner and easier clean up after target fun.

Well I picked this at the show yesterday. Another numbers matching 1943 Mosin Nagant. I have twins now.

Finally home after a week in Cincinnati. Took 13 hours to fly from Cincinnati airport to Greensboro, NC, through Newark. 4 hour delay in Newark from storms ion the east coast. I hate flying but glad to be home.
