I'll try that, too, of course.  I've just started playing with it, so it will take a bit of time to figure everything out.

Both guys I know shooting these are using .535" round balls, with .017" or thicker patching, on top of some significant powder charges.  Both guys are using oiled patches; one is using neatsfoot oil, not sure what the other is using.

I have an old Lee .527 mold that I bought in hopes it will work with my Uberti Santa Fe Hawken .53 caliber rifle. I have not yet cast any but maybe I should try them in both my Uberti and my Pedersoli. Track of The Wolf sells both .520 and .526 balls and they both work well in my Uberti.

Niederlander, post pictures of your shooting trip if you can.  I'd love to see the rifle.

The link posted by Chance is of the Pedersoli Traditional Hawken, it does not resemble a Hawken. The one that actually looks like a Hawken is the Pedersoli Rocky Mountain Hawken with a 1:65" twist barrel, or the Pedersoli Missouri River Hawken which is the same rifle as the Rocky Mountain but with a 1:24" twist barrel.

Dale, have you ever visited the Museum of the Fur Trade? That's quite a collection they have.

Here are some pics of my Pedersoli  Rocky Mountain Rifle. It is a great gun, especially for a production gun. I got mine from Cabelas when it was on sale.  Jw
