    44-40, original Winchester 1873 (manufactured 1893)
    Goex Black Dawge factory loaded rounds.
    205 gr RNFP
    ??? powder
    Starline Case
    10 rounds @ 30-35ft offhand

    Now I wanna test this at 50yd offhand and rested.

    This is DEFINATELY a partner in crime to my Remmie '58 clones.
    Add to the bunch a nice SxS BP Coach gun... and I believe that i am set!!!

    I think your sights need to be lowered a mite, Ferret. Send it to me and I'll fix it!

    I aint touching her... that was on the 'higher' of the two flip sights. The lower one prints just about an inch below POA. I figure that at 50yards the higher one may just about be hitting perfect. Although that grouping will do just fine.

    I am gonna have to pull one of the Black Dawge rounds apart and see how much powder is in there. Good things about BP is that I only have FFg or FFFg to choose from and I bet its FFg. So.. its gonna be easy to duplicate the load, and then drop the powder a little to fix the POI.

    Sounds like you have a jewel of a rifle there. May I ask what length is the barrel? I have always liked the 73, but with my budget I will have to settle for a repro 92. Good lucK on your CAS shoots.
