Re: Loading Problem for .50 2 1/2

I usually only size virgin brass and leave my cases at chamber specs after fire forming like others do and have already mentioned. An other options is to use an expander ball from a 500 s&w or 500 linebaugh as the bullets for those are .500 where as 50-90 is .510 This would help tighten up neck tens...

Re: Sharps experts, i need your wisdom

I always thought the 50-70 as a very interesting round. A trapdoor, roller, or even a conversion carbine would be an ideal woods-gun. You're on to something there :wink:

Re: Sharps experts, i need your wisdom

Agreed, originals are VERY expensive! I've been hunting around and watching the numerous web auctions and sales for years and have seen some weathered examples go for the price of a new high end Shiloh.
