Another period correct Buffalo rifle in .44-77
Well after hemming and hawing and bugging everyone on the forums with questions, looking through Seller’s book and Venturino’s over and over I finally made up my mind on my next Sharps. I am buying a Shiloh 1874 Hartford in .44-77 SBN with a 32 inch #1 1/2 barrel with the Hartford collar, military style butt stock, pewter friend tip, buckhorn rear, globe front and a mid range vernier sight. I think it would fit right in during the Buffalo hunts. It comes with brass so I need to get the dues and bullet molds together. This will be my first .44-77 and first .44 cal rifle so suggestions and advice are welcome. I will be hunting deer and pigs with it and plinking for fun. I guess I need to see about a Buffalo hunt now

RE: Another period correct Buffalo rifle in .44-77
I found it true what they say... The 44-77 is a great cartridge and my rifle is a relatively "plain Jane" Hartford with a 30" heavy barrel and barrel sights. A real shooter and was easy to work up a accurate load . It likes 2 fg in KIK or OE. You will like that rifle!
