This is my favorite rifle.
It was built by Loren "Doc" Brown.
A .54 Orion barrel with a 1-72 twist, lock by Ron Long and a walnut stock taken from a local tree that was hit by lightning.
Load is the same for hunting or range work.
80 grains of 2F, .15 patch with spit for lube, unless hunting, then bear grease and a .530 round ball. I aim just a shade under at 25 yards and a bit over at 75 plus. Kinda nice having one load, keeps things simple.

That's a very good looking rifle and I like that caliber.

Andy, got your blog on this gun from your Ruxton site in my email last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks.
