    Why would you ever put 150 grains in a 50 cal?

    It is within the max load of the rifle and should be safe using pellets. But if its loose ffg its really not necessary to use that much it just becomes a waste of powder. I have heard reports of catastrophic failures in them from using 150 grains of loose ffg. Just so you are informed.

    Please post these CVA failures. Just posting these rumors does no good for owners of these firearms. These guns are tested with "Blue Pill" loads. Why would CVA or any other company sell guns that would not hold an over loaded charge. These rifles can stand Max charges of Triple 7. Please post these failures for us to view.:confused:

    150 grain rifle loads even more than 200 years ago were not uncommon.

    Very Nice

    I found a Dixie Gun Works 'Cub' flintlock in .40 for my grandson last year.
    He loves it (and shoots it better than I do). He's 5 and still needs a bit of help loading, but he shoots from a bench with sandbags himself. Next fall he may try it at the Rendevous in Barton, VT.

    P.S. He loves the tomahawk and knife also.
    Gotta keep the young ones interested.

    Copper cap fragments really dim the eyesight
