wow thats really short for a 50cal! I'd have to email them and ask what the hell bullet length has to do with anything LOL.  Colorado had the 1" long bullet rule for a 50cal but they finally got rid of that a couple years ago. These guys making up rules havent a clue what they are doing IMO.

NO ,I was wrong ,,,,

Conical bullets made of lead, lead alloy, or federally-approved nontoxic shot material, with a length that does
not exceed twice the diameter; (c) Lead free copper conical bullets with a length that does not exceed twice the diameter


So I can go to 1"

if you go to range reports you will see lots of load combos and targets....for synthetic black powder I would say over 80% here shoot blackhorn 209 ...rest wiould be pellets or loose pyrodex or triple 7 loose...browse thru the range reports and see what you like....

hello Frontier Grander,
Do you have any other load combinations for legal use here in the Northwest. I already know about working up for specific firearm. I am thinking about other powders and bullet combinations  such as 777 or pyrodex RS with various legal bullets????

Thanks

New returnee. I live in California and I have a traditions Pioneer percussion .50 caliber I inherited from my brother recently. I am using 90 grains, by volumn, Triple 7, FFg powder with an approved 1% .451 caliber bullet by Magtech available at Midway for about $70.00 per hundred plus shipping, described as 45 auto SCHP. Bullet length 0.65 inches, with Thompson Center super glide sabots. 3 shot 50 yard group 0.75 inch. First time with this rifle. Completely legal in California. Also shot same powder charge and sabot with a Barnes .451 bullet for the 460 S&W part number 30554. This grouped at 1.0 inches at 50 yards. Both bullets were stable (no key holing) in a 1:48 twist barrel. Hope this helps.

Cabela's Hawken. .54 caliber, with 1 in 48 twist, shooting .530 RB, patched with a .010 Wonder Lube patch.  I use 60 gr of FF Triple 7.

To reduce the effect of my poor eyesight, I shoot for groups at 25 yards.  

The combo above yields a 1" group.  Not great.  I fact it is pitiful!  But I suspect most that 1" is my eyes.  It's a blast just the same!
