Re: 50 cal flintlock pistol
Have succesfully hunted whitetail deer in New Hampshire with a flint pistol.The one that had the best handling and power was one of the old round butt CVA Mountian pistols,the flinter version may be hard to find but worth it.Was shooting a .490 RB with a .015 patch and a wad over the powder in front of 60 grains Goex FFFG.Stiff,but broke both shoulders on a 200 lb. buck at 25 yards.
