Sears (Miroku) 45 cal muzzle loader?

My father built one when I was a kid and always kept it hanging above their fireplace. They redid their home and my dad knowing my love for front stuffers gave it to me. It's never been fired or out of their house.

Anyone ever shoot one? I assume its a PRB shooter, the barrel length is long, but it shoulders very nice. I can't wait to get some balls and patches and see how she shoots.

Any info anyone can share will be appreciated. I'm going to strip her down and give her a thorough cleaning. My research reveals it takes a #11 Cap, but some say they shoot great.

I built an Ulra-Hi .45 kentucky longrifle back in the early 70s that was made by that company. It shot great but I sold it along with my hawkin I had built to fund my 1st boat motor. After I found out this company also made the weatherbys over in Japan I regreted selling it.

I read that they made wetherbys too. It's a pretty gun, I know it's not a custom build, but I can't wait to see how it shoots, if nothing else it will be fun for early doe season.

I knew a guy who had one, he used a .433 round all with .15 patching, if I remember it mic'ed under .45 like .441. .435 may work too. 60 grains fff is a good start.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

I'll bring it when we get together and you can look at it.

Does the barrel need seasoned at all do you think?
