Thanks for all the suggestions, y'all. You're basically confirming that I need a .45-70 - or a .38-55 if I can find one. I already have a Pedersoli Sharps in .45-70 and a CPA/Stevens 44 1/2 in...

Ruger No. 1 Straight wall cartridge options

I have always loved single shot rifles, especially the falling block designs. I've got a Sharps and 2 Stevens, and I used to have a nice Ruger No. 1 in .308win that I sold years ago. I miss that...

I use a BACO 535g Money bullet for my Sharps. If the Pedersoli Hi Wall has the same barrel (1-16" twist) that would probably work well.

Thanks! I doubt I need the extra water and dust protection, so that's not much of a concern. Are the Skull Screws "better" just because they have a better NRR rating? More to the point, could they be...

Double duty electronic ear plug recommendations?

I've never liked ear muffs, as I always wear glasses of some kind which...

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.
