Re: Load data for 50-90 Sharps

I bought a pedersoli sharps billy Dixon in 2007. My first loads for the big 50 were terrible. The sights are fat from great I ended up putting c sharps front and rear on the rifle and punched it out to 50-90 before I shot it. First loading could not hit the barn from inside. I changed to sharps prof...

Re: Looking for a gun to get my 9 year old started?

Thanks but I have one more stupid question what is a cpa. And I would like for the gun to be legal in BPCR so maybe next year he could be ready so that leaves out the breakopens.

If I go with a 40-50 what are my re chamber options, down the road?

Re: Looking for a gun to get my 9 year old started?

And I appreciate your opinion the 22 bpcr would be great but to my limited knowledge we don't have any 22 shoots in our part of the world, and his mother and I divorced about 2 years ago so time with him is limited, and he is interested. I want to foster his interest the best I can. The hi walls are...

Re: Looking for a gun to get my 9 year old started?

Well he got his first 22 for his 4 th birthday he's killed deer with a 25-06, and he's way interested in my sharps. I guess I should have Ask if there are better choices to get them started. I have seen a 12 year old girl shooting a 40-65 at matches and he is fixing to turn 10 so that's why I picked...

Looking for a gun to get my 9 year old started?

I would like to get a kinda cheap gun to get my 9 year old started shooting.

So far I am leaning towards a C Sharps 1875 hunter in 40-65. The one thing I see wrong with it is single trigger.

It's lighter than the pedersoli 40-65 both guns in the 1250 range with no sights.

Any thoughts?

Re: First shoot

Brent thanks. My plan it to shoot a few matches and see how the timing and pace goes. Hopefully get where I can wipe between shots.
Not having done it wiping just feels like to much.
At some point I will have to choose to stay with this bullet or get a better gg mold or both lol

Re: First shoot

It shoots just about like my 457125 grease groove load which is about 2 inches at 100 yards. I don't really expect to set the world on fire.

Re: First shoot

Fowling will be controlled the worst possible until I shoot a couple of matches and see which way I want to go. I will be using a 3/16 felt lube wad and a blow tube.

I'm pretty sure till I get more trigger time the ammo is not the weak link the guy jerking the trigger is.

Re: First shoot

Thanks everyone I look forward to making smoke. I have 2 loads that work in my gun the Lyman 457125 and a Kal tool and die paper patch both of which I can shoot into 2" at 100 yards off a bench. As of yet I have not sent one round down range off of cross sticks yet. Neither is as good as Mike Ventur...
