Want to say thanks for the assistance I received here. I ordered a Deerstalker 50 cal flintlock today. Was quoted $335, which seems to be a good price. Will post numerous other questions when it arrives

Just bought a Deerstalker a month ago myself. You are going to love it. After shooting different loads my gun shot 80 grains of Goex and a 240 grain PA Conical the best out of it. Just a suggestion in case you were thinking of different loads to try out!

I love the PA Conical. Did you use 2F or 3F ?

I was shooting 2f. Can't wait to see how they perform on deer. I am taking a week and a half off from work for the late season and heading north to Potter County. Hopefully I can connect with one.

I am getting ready to start shooting my new deerstalker again. I bought it early summer and could not get a group. I am thinking I may have to try shooting conicals.

I really hope my shooting improves, but I still think my trigger pull is way too stiff.
