40cal muzzle loader.

Any one have good loads for a 40 black powder rifle using ffg or fffg black powder. Neighbor has one that was built by a local builder. Can't remember his name but his guns brought big money when he went to shoots in Pa. That's where he sold most of them. He was a real craftsman.

Mine is a Flintlock in 40 cal. I use a powder load of 55 grains and a lead ball which is a 390. in it. Shoots extremely well. Mine was a custom build in Canada. I love shooting this one a lot.

.40 long rifle

I was in a black powder club in Mississippi in the 1980s and needed a good-shooting rifle. I order parts from Dixie Gun Works and put my own together using a Sharon .40 barrel with 1 in 72 twist and .395 patched ball and about 45 grains of FFFg. Won several matches at 25 and 50 yards. That barrel will make one ragged hole at 50 yards off the bench. Also killed a spike deer with it, hit in shoulder, found bullet expanded like a nickel under skin on other side. Took two leaps and piled up.
