Got rid of my last 50 Cal flinter when I sold my RMC AccuSporter. I immediately invested in a Lyman GPR 54 Cal so my Brad Emig custom 54 Cal PA Mountain Rifle didnt get lonely!!

54 cal. I heard someone say the number should add up to 9. 36,45,54 ect. But I think he said that because that's what he had and the other guy didn't.

.54 Deerstalker
Mine is a Lebanoncaster. Typical of the work of PDQ Beck, distant cousin of John Phillip Beck. PDQ lived in Lancaster county but somehow got things a little bit crossed with his cousins handywork. Needless to say PDQ is not well known and my work probably won't make me famous either.
....but it fits me and it shoots like dream.
