bob,
i have never had a desire for the 45 3 1/4 sharps.
i do have a 40/72 which i refer to as 40/72 as case dimensions are similar.
i have shot thousand of paper patched bullets out of that a long range targets using around 85 gns of swiss 1.5 f and 1 f powder.
it obviously has less recoil than the 45/2.4 loaded with 100 gns powder, and the bullet is 440 gns compared to 540.
the barrel is a gaintwist going from 1:26 to 1:13.
it has about exactly the same wind deflection at 1000 yds as the 45.
i had to play with bullet length for best stability, and the 3rd custom mould at 1.5" long proved perfect.
bruce.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
