Pedersoli 1874 Sharps Empty

I had this rifle for a couple years and kept playing with it off and on trying to find a load that was accurate enough for my taste. Well I think I finally found one.  This load uses Star Line brass, IMR4064 powder (49.0 gr), CCI 200 primer and a home cast 405 gr paper patched bullet. (bullet was cast at .458", sized down to .451" and paper patched and sized to .457").  Three shots, open sights 0.75" C-C.

Myself and several friends have shot 74 Sharps built by several of the high dollars guys out of Big Timber. A friend wanted to play with a Pedersoli 1874 Sharps (I have an FFL so we order one from our dist.) the price was right and it was ordered.  He shoots the gun for a while then wants to rechamber it from 45/70 to 45/90 for a little more zip.  Pedersoli Sharp's barrels are sweated into the breech so we find and my custom  gunsmith couldn't get the barrel out to rechamber the gun. Contact Pedersoli and was told if a 45/90 was wanted they could provide one, never mentioned our problem with the sweated barrel to breech. Lesson learned, don't try to modify their guns.

I have several modern Sharps out of MT with free bore as well as two original Sharps with the same treatment.
