If yours is anything like mine, it'll prefer a .459 or .460 bullet. Out past 150-200 yds, mine really needs a heavy bullet - 500+ grains.

So, just to clarify, it sounds like the OP is looking at a gun with exposed hammers, right? If so, rebounding hammers are very normal.

That's really helpful. Thanks.

Can you point me to a good info source on the Anson-and-Deeley guns? I presume you're referring to English-made guns from the BSA or other similar factories?
