    .50 Wesson Rifle

    I have the same Malcom scope on my 45/90 Sharps I had to rework my rear mount also to fit the dovetail . Had to also put double lock rings on it to make scope from moving in mount from recoil.

    Lyman Plains Pistol 54cal First Target shoot

    Sure wish they made that pistol in 54 Flint so I could make a mate for my GP Flintlock .I have my CVA Mountain rifle and pistol both in 50 Percussion and usually take them together on a hunt.

    Testing the LEE REAL Bullet

    I shoot them in my Pedersoli Kodiak 58 double barrel extremely more accuracy then I have been able to do with round ball in the Kodiak . Also use them in my TC Renegade 54 same results . Havent tried any in 50 cal yet guess I need to order the mold and see.
