Old Army Hunting Loads

I've hunted deer, hogs and wild turkey successfully with my Old Army and it does fine if you keep the range within 25 yards. I TIG welded .10" onto my front sight to enable a good zero with heavier bullets. I shoot either the Lee 250-gr. R.E.A.L. or the Saeco 230-gr. Maxi-Ball with an Ox Yoke Originals wad and either 30 grs. of Goex FFFg or Pyrodex P, for about 900 f.p.s. It's equal to a .45 Colt. A .457 roundball with the same charge is about 1050 and makes a nice small game load.
