i have been reading some scant excerpts about the activities of some members members of the Boone and Crockett probably around 1885/1910?
Interestingly and hopefully there seems to have been a change of ethics from the old "whack it anywhere" situation of that time to the present day conservation stance?
Even more interest to me are some of the old calibers in Black Powder, most probably obsolete? except the 45-70. I am still researching these starting with Wikipedia.
So far I have heard of the following used on Bear, Sheep and Moose to a lesser or greater success. 45-70. .577. 50-110, 30-40 and 40-93-400. some as double rifles.
Any comment or information welcomed particularly from over the pond?.........where there may still be a few hanging about?
