Circa 1875 in northern Michigan hunting out of "Camp Erwin"

"Most hunters that hung out at deer camp Erwin used the Model 1873 Winchester in .44 W.C.F. (44-40)......"

I wonder how many of these deer were harvested with the 1873 Winchester?
I'll bet 80+%.

 What is your pet load that you plan on hunting with . Will you be shooting black or smokeless ? And what caliber is your 1873 ?

w44wcf:
Rowdy Fulcher,

I like stepping back in time so I plan on using 40 grs of SWISS FFG with a 200 gr. cast bullet in original W.R.A. CO. 44 W.C.F. cases (see avatar)..... similar to the ammunition that John Irwin used in his '73.....back in the 1870's...... ;D
