It will prefer lead to jacketed bullets and the heavier the better it seems.
Ive got a Pedersoli myself and this is what Im finding out.
Be popular? Heck, I have enough friends.

I've got one and it's pretty accurate. Initially I had trouble with it shooting non gascheck bullets (500 gr BPS) but realized the gasses were melting the bullet base before it left the 32" barrel. Started seating a gas check under the bullet and the problem went away. I have a Vernier sight on it now and the same sight setting is good for a 410 grain RCBS FNGC over 50 grains Winchester 748 at 300 yards(1600 fps) and a 520 grain bulllet at 200 yards (Lyman & RCBS BPS 500-520 grainers + the RCBS 520 FNGC at 1500 fps) Th eset trigger is extremely sensitive on mine, once you set the back trigger, all it takes to fire it is breathe on the front. So be careful.

Although I rarely shoot jacketed bullets in my Quigley Sharps, it does shoot the 405 & 300 gr. bullets just fine. I use smokless, usually AA5744, but also Varget & IMR4198. The loads are mostly "1873" loads so they can be shot in the 2 Pedersoli Trapdoors.
Have shot black and pyrodex with excellent results with both 405 & 500 cast.

ALSO: I have some 600 grain Barnes .458 FMC bullets and cannot find ANY load info for them, they were discontinued by Barnes about 6 years ago and Barnes has no loading info for them.
They would be used in the 2 Ruger #1's.
