Had my repop P53 Enfield for 21 years. 4 deer and God knows how many Yankees. Lyman 575213OS and 70 grains of 3f Goex.
My newest 58 is a Euroarms 1863 Remington. Sweet rifle that I will be rebedding and resighting to be a hunter. She has a 1-48 twist and does well with minies.
With 60 grains of 2f Swiss, that Lyman moves out at 1062 fps. Even though she weighs 9 pounds, you KNOW you pulled a trigger! My mold is supposed to drop a 460 grain minie.
It drops a 505 grain. A bit heavy for an Old Style!
I can, using paper cartridges, with an empty musket load, aim and fire 3 shots in 52 seconds. And hit what I'm shooting at.
Reenacting has its benefits!


Keepin my back green and my.powder dry.
The LORD bless and keep you

That is a helluva deer with anything. I talked to gunner right after he shot it this afternoon and he has one fine Hawken that will take the powder, and he doesn't hesitate to lean on it. 140 grains of KIK 2f and a .562 round ball carries the mail, big time. Those red specks you see scattered in the picture aren't little flowers or berries, they are bits of flesh and lung tissue. Gunner hit that deer right and proper, and it just doesn't get any better than a REAL Hawken and a patched round ball. Gunner said the rifle shot exactly to the sights at 133 yards.

Thanks Men, I logged in before daybreak till after dark for a tough and very cold 3.5 days of hunting looking for this old warrior, ole Bud said he was between 7.5 and 9.5 years old, a real tough old brute.

FWIW, he is 20 inches wide with 12 inch G2's, very observant on your part Sharpsguy, I didn't even notice the red chunks in the brush, I took a quick pic and got to work, a lot to do as nightfall quickly approached. smile

And many Thanks for posting the pic KW, I appreciate it, the big [18mph] West wind in my face had no concerns for drift at 133 yards, Thanks God! smile still cant believe that ball was packing that kind of freight at that distance, as the 140 grains of black powder smoke blew back over my face the old boss was thrashing about on the ground right where he stood.

The buck weighed 222 lbs dressed, those in the know, would that put that old hoss at close to 300 on the hoof?

I’d say close Gunner. I’d figure 40-50lbs for guts.

Pretty danged cool. Sounds like that big ball took him hard. Did it blow thru?

Dang, run off and hunt daylight till dark for a few days, then work daylight till dark for two weeks getting caught back up, it was all damn worth it though. smile

Thanks for all the Congrats Men, Big B, yessir it blew through, big exit hole in the ribs, still amazed at what a 58 cal ball will do, I saw the buck thrashing when the smoke cleared, and the hill I was on was a very dangerous descent getting down to him, I did have to take my eyes off him for a sec or two, he could have very easily flopped around and got behind the blood, lung and meat chunks, I found him as he lay in the picture, hit him on that side too.

Thanks Sharpsman, he may have been around 275 on the hoof, what an old stub, he was still getting with the girls, his inside hocks below the glands were completely rubbed raw, not one hair there, all gone.

Ahhh. Good point on the meat chunks in the bushes.

Too damned cool Gunner. You’re motivating me to get the Hawken out and take it to the woods.
