What do you guys know about them ?? I am thinking about getting myself a old "style" percussion and they are the site with the largest variaty I have seen. Smile

I am planing on getting the M1863 Zouave made by Armi Sport they sell for 475$ as my first ML. Its 58 Caliber and I plan on using .575 Mine Ball's like Dixie suggests for hunting. Cool

Goex only though. If I am going to be shooting a Black powder rifle I want to smell the sulfur in the air Wink

What do you all think of this as a general purpose hunting rifle to go after anything that walks North America (assuming I ever get the chance to hunt everything) ??

PS Next one I get after this one will be a Cook and Brother Carbine by Euro Arms its also a 58cal percussion side lock. What do you think about that one too ??

There is an alternative to GOEX black powder. Try eating a can of pork-n-beans and a few hard boiled egges, then load the rifle with Triple Se7en. You still get plent of smoke and a bore that is easier to clean and still have plenty of sulphur smell left over.

You might have a dirty streak but not in the bore.

On the serious side, well that was serious Very Happy , Dixie is a great company and they have alot of knowledge to pass on to you. The .58 is a little large for rabbit's & prarie dog's but like you say it's effective on most anything.

I have a Dixie Cub 40 caliber rifle and that thing is death on Fox and coyote, and looks great. I also have a Dixie Tennessee Rifle, 32 caliber, made in Japan of all places, and it is a gorgeous piece, and shoots great with Hornady swaged balls and .015" patch over 20 grains FFF.

I think popgun may have with his suggestion on the pork and beans and eggs to Dimitri. Everyone is probably worried about what the effect is going to be. Fart Fart Fart

Wouldn't mind having a go at BP hunting. Think I will have a look at the price of a "middle of the road" rifle and if it fits into the budget it just might be a goer. Something sort of nostalgic about a black powder firearm.

Cheers, Vince

Dimitri, Lymans are well made rifles, I had a great plains rifle for 6 years, sold to my best freind, he still useing it with great results.
Vince, If you could get a gun to use "beans and boiled eggs, that would be deadly on both ends :(:(
