60 rounds through the 50 Express rifle this morning. Cleaned  after every 5 shot's. My way of burnishing in a new barrel. Cleanup was easy and no trace of leading. The load that is working best is a 300gr. rnfp .510 dia .  Lubed with deer tallow/wax/olive oil .Jammison case filled with 84gr. 2ff Swiss Bp. Winchester primer , roll crimp. This Express rifle weigh's in at 7lb. 2 oz. With that load is has a wallop on both ends. Not a target rifle but sure nuff ' a hunting rifle. ,,,DT

Have to give a Good Word for( Winchesterbarrels .com) . They did a great job on my 50/95 wcf rebarrel. The more the old 76 with the new barrel is shot the better it shoots. Dont think that I have a barrel that cleans-up faster than the big fifty. To date the old 76 has yet to take game . It has been lifted a time or two on feral hog , but the right one has not presented itself so far. There are three giant wild spanish goats that came very close to stopping one of the big fifties bullets . But for being late in the day and a long drag out saved them ,  and me an exciting evening.  Sooner or later the right big boar will present himself , and the 50/95 will be blooded. ,,,DT

I had an opportunity to take a photograph of the dust cover of the Uberti Winchester 1876, with the .50 calibre express roll stamping by Mike Hunter. The quality of the work is truly superb.

The lettering is not actually “white”. I used an LED light to highlight the text for clarity. The specks are just dust that was also highlighted.
