I need some help location a load data

Hi folks I was hoping to get some advise on proper load for my fathers old Hawken. Its a 50 cal with what I gather is a slow twist 1 in maybe 60 inches. So I am sure its patched round ball. Its a Italy made gun flinter with nice metal work.

I have not shot this gun in many many years. I got from a family member that hung it on the wall. Such a waste of a fine gun.

I think I remeber something like 80 grains 2f main charge and then a dusting of 4 f in the pan? I really want to work a safe load and take the gun out this fall.

Thanks Koz

will hunt for food....
