The last 2 were both MOA in competition, shooting black powder loads, which is a whole nuther learning curve. If you decide to go that route, I can save you a lot of headache with some simple loading techniques. The Pedersoli shoots just as good as the other two, at half the price. I have only found on place on the wood on the Pedersoli that was proud, other than that it is a beautiful gun and I love it. I also have 2 Original Trapdoors, 2 Remington rollers, a H&R Buffalo classics, a Browning hi wall, and 2 Marling levers, a first year guide gun and
a1895 std. I have 8 molds and shoot smokeless and BP and am having a ball doing so.
If you are going to shoot a BPCR official match, it will be BP all the way, and an informal match, you can get some outstanding loads, I use mostly 3031 with mild to wild loads, with equal success. I have taken elk, bear, mule deer and several whitetails with a 45/70 and use the 405 gr JSP or Hp on elk, on all else I used 300JHP's with good success. Don't bother to use the Hornady 325 Flextip on any heavy boned game. I have seen them fail on elk, drastically. Pm me or call me 606-207-2079 tomorrow afternoon after church and we can chew the fat.
