I enjoyed the story. You had a great outcome; nice rifle.
What's his contact #.
My standard minie load was a 500 grn minie over 60 grains of either 3F or 2F depending on what was available locally.
I've owned 2 .32 rifles and found them to be no trouble to load or shoot. Mine shot well with just about everything I pushed down the bore.
I can get anyone a deal on a gun. All I have to do is buy one at the inflated price, take it home and a sale of the century will start that same...
Welcome, Jeremy. I agree that TOW is a great place to get your flints from. $8 for two is outlandish. I saw them on Amazon and was astonished....

A great hunt as usual and a beautiful bird. The last pheasant I saw, believe it or not, was in a cow pasture back down in Georgia. That was...
Like Eric, I've killed oodles (a scientific term) of deer with a couple of .45 rifles. I never had one run far and quite a few of them were...
For the .45 and the .50 for targets you won't need heavy loads. So I'd recommend 1-56" for either one. Even 1-48" will do very well if the...
