Cook and Brother carbine is inbound. Uniform slight delay. Will be good to go all for less than $800.00

That's not half bad, a kit with rifle included for around 800? Thats one in the 'win' column.

Boots and saddles, oiling a McClellan Cavalry saddle, and tack, all day, 2 hour ride in cold and wind, saddle good fit, horse is a gun horse, and good tempered. Been awhile since in a saddle, little sore in unmentionable places, but overall fun. My duster needs oiling too, a little wet on inside, got chilly near the end.

Got a shoot with locals in two weeks, and a Winter shoot in three, so should be a fun time.

If I get the Hawken tuned in may come back for the Nebraska State Games 200yard Traditional Shoot in June. Can still stack hits in the 5 ring at about 150yards, so another 50 is just a little elevation, and a good wind. I once hit and dropped a deer with the Hawken at about 200yards, good base of neck shot (where I aimed) and rose barrel about an inch and a half. .54's full loads do have a knock down. Also found a H+R 1871 Buffalo Rifle in 45/70 for $325, again I do not like chasing a bleeding out deer.

Octagonal barrel? Careful with those, We've got one that I cannot find ammunition for. I've tried two or three different boxes, and I can't get any of them fit the chamber on the rifle.

Just shoot deer with the Cook and Brother. A .577 hole is generally enough to prevent it from going too far.

Maybe you need then chamber reamed? I've heard some reproductions rifles have (back in the day) had those issues.

That could really be it. This is an ancient reproduction. in fact, if it got any older, it'd probably be an original. I'll look into it, thanks.
