I do like that 444P. They only made it for a couple of years, too. Hard to find. Very nice.

Thank you, it is one of my favorite rifles. I don't even mind the ported barrel. Actually, I wouldn't mind if the 1895G was ported.

Bear stopper

I had this go through the shop recently. It was headed for a Kodiak hunt after it left here.
I really liked the looks so I took a picture of it.
It's a 71 Browning converted to 50-110 WCF.
5200 ft lb muzzle energy.
You need to hang on tight when it lights off.

I love the 50 cal guns . Are you using smokeless powder or black powder in your gun .. I shot a 50-70 in a Sharps Rifle in matches for years which was a pussy cat and my buddy has a 50-140 Sharps Rifle in black powder only and it sure kicks in 14 lbs rifle . I bet that 50-110 of your must kick like a mule in a light lever gun . Are you using Bell brass because the 348 brass I think is to short to make 50-110 . OH welcome from Tx .

The only .50 cal that I have fired (except for M2 BMG in Army) is the .500 S&W in an H&R Handy Rifle. Recoil about on par with my 45-70s.

My brother has a M71 Browning in .50 Alaskan but I haven't fired it. The muzzle energy is more than double that of my .45-70 so... umm... I don't know that I ever will.

Oh, welcome from Kansas!!

Yes, the rounds that the owner left with the gun were Starline brass loaded with smokeless and 300 gr bullets. The recoil was in the 60 ft lb region. They chrono'd around 2650.
You could shoot 50 Alaskan's in it but we didn't have any loaded up. I'm not sure they would feed either.

Thanks for the welcomes.

Glad to hear that. Always better to have too much fun in your life then lots of spare time. Hope to see more of you, though.

The latest was Bonneville. I was one of the FlatCad team drivers 2 years ago.
I am still involved in vintage circle track racing and partially sponsor a car out of NC.
