Thanks for posting your pictures . We all love our 73's and we love hunting with them . And as we have all seen a 44wcf is a effect Deer cartridge .  I want to thank John Kort for all of his hard work and help with the 44wcf .

I've killed several deer with a muzzleloader that I've built from parts, not a kit. It's a very satisfying achievement. I wish I was still hunting. It would be neat to use a 73 or 76 to harvest a deer. I love the photos. Congratulations guys.

  I just ordered a pound of Swiss 3f and a pound of d Eynsford 2f for my 38-40's and 44-40's. I have loads for the 3f but am hoping the 2f will work to reduce velocities for CAS shooting.

  Been watching this scrub buck for a few weeks waiting on the weather to cool down so he could hang before butchering.

 

 I keep the rifle loaded and THOUGHT the magazine was full of BP loads, but for some reason I had filled it with smokeless handloads. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?

Good job! Good meat for the freezer. I must be getting old, my eyesight getting bad, but that sure don't look like any 73 I've ever seen.  Wink

 Well...it's not an 1860 and it's not an 1873, so I split the difference!

  That particular load is 9.5 gr. oF Unique. It and the BP load of 2.2cc of Swiss 3Fg are ballistic twins giving practically identical velocities.

Good harvest. I've got a rifle just like that myself in 44wcf. Mine has never seen anything but black powder.

  Thanks. BP in this rifle has shot very well. I'm still at a loss as to why I had it.loaded with smokeless unless it was at a point when I was out of Swiss 3Fg. Anyhow....I'll remedy that soon.

Got tags, got my survivor twins and some quick-moving 2400 smokeless loads, hopefully the middle fork of the Feather River will be down a couple of bucks next month.

That stock looks like it's got a story or two to tell. What's the rest of it look like?

I wish I had a great story for the stock. All I know is that it was $60 on GunBroker. The rifle came to me with a bandsawn piece of oak for a stock when I was 11. we'd moved off the family "patch" into town and I missed my gramps fierce. So he gave me this old relic for a toy and to connect me and him while I lived in town. That was in 1979. This last year I started piecing stuff off of eBay and GunBroker, put the  old bastard back into service. Here's a couple more pictures.
