What load for 50 caliber Lyman Plains Pistol?
« on: December 05, 2018, 08:13:45 AM »
My dad just traded for a 50 caliber percussion cap Lyman Plains Pistol and he called me up to research what load folks typically shot out of this pistol. I'm guessing that 40 grains of FFF would be a pretty good place to start but I'd like to hear from anyone who has one of these pistols. Dad wants a load to hunt deer with.

Thanks in advance!

lyman considers 40gr of 3f as a maximum load, maybe start off with 30 grains?
