Got this fella the other day with my original 1861 Colt Special Musket, manufactured in 1863. Loaded with 60 gr. of powder (government load, if I am correct) and a 510 gr. Minie Ball @ 1000fps, chronographed. My Missus bought this rifle 20+ years ago as an anniversary gift, and has been my main hunting rifle since. Love her and the musket!
