Fingers, that set is awesome!  I'll be happy to shoot them for you!

As Mississippi said "I have a host of friends"

While these will stay pristine like the rest of my NIB Colts, I do have other C series 2nd Gen '51 Navies - and F series '61 Navies that I do shoot.  They are very accurate and smooth shooters.

Fingers, I just loves that bottom carbine! Got my shoulder stock for my '60.
The first step of becoming a good shooter is knowing which end the bullet comes out of and being on the other end.

Call me crazy but sharps don't move me like a rolling block ...

Is there anyone making a r.45-70 rolling block that could be shot BROWS with about 12-15 #s weight and a  30" Barrel?

I have a Shiloh Sharps and I much prefer the rolling block, but right now it is broke and waiting for a part to be manufactured.

Given a choice which would your preference be for a .45-70 rolling block? And is the .30-30 considered a  BROW?

I love my 43 spanish roller.

1879 full military stocked musket rifle.

Now if'n I can ever find a decently priced correct bayonet for it!:)

If you reload - 43 spanish is not that hard of a caliber to load for.

Okay,  when reloading., what do you use for a case, and do you have to modify it?   

And what would you use for a bullet?

Or you can buy loaded .43 Spanish black powder cartridges from Gad Custom Cartridges:

With all respect to Pony Racer, I could never get the bullet close enough to the leade for my 1879 Argie roller to be accurate.  As it had been cut almost to musketoon lenght and lost its collector value I have now had ithe barrel replaced with a Greenmountain #3.5 barrel in .45-70.

These guns were chambered for easy reloading in lousy conditions, and not for accuracy.  The action has been mentioned as desireable for conversion.

The cheapest option is to get a used rifle configured as you wish, and don't fool around with mods.  Spend a lot on good sights and good bullets/moulds.

Sir Charles,

Thanks for the insight ...

I have always liked the rolling block action better than a Sharps, and have always wanted one that could compete Creedmoor style with the Sharps ... and in a perfect world there would be a reproduction rifle that I could afford that would do that ,,, and if it were in smething less punishing than the .45-70 (For my shoulders, though intact, are not getting any younger LOL), well. so much the better ...

Sir Charles,

 ,,, and if it were in smething less punishing than the .45-70 (For my shoulders, though intact, are not getting any younger LOL), well. so much the better ...

.38-55, .38-56, .40-60maynard, .40-70, or .40-65 are some alternatives, but only the first and last are factory chambered at present, and I'm not sure by whom.  The .38s are considered marginal for 500 meter silhouettes, and the .40s are not really successes at 1,000 yard (Or so I've heard!) The .30-30 or .30-40 would be OK out to 300 yds, but I don't think they are legal for buffalo shoots. For economic reasons, barring a lottery win, try to stick to used factory offerings.

Sir Charles,

Thanks for the advice on ammo and rounds .... for you are right; the time to commit to a round is BEFORE I buy a rifle and am committed to that round ...
