Howdy folks I was given an old CVA Hawkens the other day and caught the bug. Problem is I don't know anything about black powder guns. This gun is a 50 cal. I don't even know what bullet to shoot, balls or a bullet shaped projectile. Would anyone be so generous as to start me on my way...What powder? Primers? Cleaning stuff...I can likely figure this out Bullet type , weight , Powder charge weight I have been around guns , own a few and hunt regularly, I'm not a city boy and learn fast. Hoping to be ready for Elk next year. Thanks Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
