  • Shooting With Pedersoli's 1-in-24 Twist .50 Caliber RB-ML Rifle

    While the rifle shown here, the Pedersoli .50 caliber No. 209 primer ignition in-line Rolling Block Muzzleloader, may have a very mid to late 1800's look to it, this rifle is actually somewhat advanced over the vast majority of other .50 caliber in-line rifle models on the market right now.  And, that would be due to the fact that the rifling twist of this rifle's bore is a snappy 1-in-24 twist ... while every other production run in-line .50 caliber rifle comes with a 1-in-28 rifling twist....

    Another excellent article by Toby Bridges: "In a roundabout manner, NORTH AMERICAN MUZZLELOADER HUNTING played a bit of a role in the introduction of the 1-in-24 twist .50 caliber Missouri River Hawken rifle.  At the 2005 and 2006 SHOT Shows, I had made it a point to pay the Davide Pedersoli & Co. display a visit...to kind of keep up on what the company had new, and to visit with my old friend Pierangelo Pedersoli - who now runs that gunmaking operation.  A few years earlier, working with...

  • A Study Of Muzzleloading KE by Toby Bridges

    Another excellent hunting related article posted by Toby Bridges on http://www.namlhunt.com: "The limited range of traditionally styled reproduction muzzle-loaded rifles of the 1960's and 1970's can be attributed to the old-style projectiles of the period.  When it comes to retaining game-taking energy at any real distance, the patched soft lead round ball is the least effective hunting projectile.  Now, this isn't meant to rekindle arguments with die-hard patched round ball shooters...it's...
