    wabbit, if you go shoot an elk with a .50 cal BMG, I believe it will look like the elk was hit with a small meteor.LOL

    That's what I told my friend. I said that I would like a little meat to eat for my efforts.

    Now on the other hand, if I was in grizzly territory that caliber might come in handy. Never mind shooting the bear multiple times to save yourself, just shoot it once, and watch it drop like a rock.

    I don't modern rifle hunt. I mainly use a bow but I will pick up my Dixie Gun Works .58 Caliber Flintlock Jaeger Black powder Muzzle loader. I make my own bullets, Minie balls 500 grains with 100 grains FF.

    Those old flintlock rifles look so awesome. On one of the other forums I frequent a guy has three of them that he builds himself and they are so gorgeous I could see never taking them out. I hunt only modern firearms right now but I still appreciate the beauty inherent in the older guns.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure that i could do it when I first use a muzzle loader. I was worried about the powder falling out the pan while I'm was spot and stalking. I've learned since then. Washington only allows Primitive style muzzle loader or ML with a breech open to the elements. We can't use scopes either. The .58 on my rifle is a custom Barrel. The barrel itself is around 600 bucks. plus my Father engraved it and inlaid some gold and silver into it. The rifle comes in a smaller sizer normally. It has a little kick.
