Whoa fellas! Let me step back in here. I greatly appreciate all the help and advice I've received. I've really learned a bunch. I can get conicals from No Excuses and some other sources, I can use Pyrodex or 777 successfully, I understand the principle of a slip fit barrel and I'm beginning to understand the value (not just the monetary value, but values such as workmanship, accuracy, ease and forgiveness) of the White. I also understand the company is no longer in business - so breakage may be a factor - although it's not really a consideration - really, I've got very little in the rifle - if it breaks, well, I'll cross that bridge when/if I get to it. I also understand that in a pinch I should get reasonable accuracy with a sabot even with the high twist rate in the barrel.

I now own this rifle based on factors I was looking for - short barrel, stainless barrel, composite stock, caliber smaller than 50, and believe it or not for the reason that it's "bolt handle" is on the left side - and the fact that it was right in front of me for a good price didn't hurt. As I write this I am still undecided what to do but at least I know it is a shootable piece with available fodder. While I consider what is next I will take the time to thoroughly research the muzzle loader "world". So by all means, please continue with advice and options. Again, thanks to all!

Good going zara_puppy!!!!! You got a steal on a nice squirrel rifle there. ;D

From another DWB, it would be a mistake if you sell it. Learn about it and shoot it, it'll become your favorite and you'll know that the Chief speaks the truth.

I got it out (yes, it's still in the case and in the box!) a little bit ago to see how well the fiber optics picked up the light. Man, this dude 'holds' good. Not muzzle heavy like most muzzle loaders. The sights looked like they had lights hitting them. I don't know how much longer I can resist shooting it! I happen to have #11's on hand - from a borrowed muzzleloader last year and of course the rifle came with bullets - 20 of them. I know where to get a pound of Pyrodex P (from what I understand the preferred powder). I also have a scale that's accurate to within 1/10 of a grain - I hand load for my Redhawk. So I have everything I need. Although it's pretty short it feels like it would be good out to 100 yards (maybe just under) without a scope. I'm trying to fight the urge...... :

I'm sorry for the disruption. It got a little out of hand. I've had a couple bad days.

I've really got to quit hanging out on these message boards.

Good luck with your new rifle.

zara_puppy!!!!!

Welcome to the world of DWB's! As you can see WH hates us! He hates Whites and everything about them!

So WHAT!

Hay! You got a great deal on a GREAT RIFLE! I own G-Series Whitetail Hunter in .504! I also have a Super 91 in .504! Both are great rifles. White never made a lot of rifles. They never were main stream. Nay Sayer's always want to point that out. Then there's the "where are you going to get parts?" GEZZ! What's to break? I've never had a deer walk from a 460 grain NoExcuses! I've never own a muzzleloader that you could shot and load well over 30 time with out swabing or cleaning! Accuracy is world class! Killing power is WORLD class!

Welcome aboard zara_puppy!!!!!

WH! We'd thought you'd have learned by now! ;D

It's all good, guys. No harm has been done here and a bunch of information has been obtained - and I thank you all!! So - here are a couple of questions for those that know - First - what are the two small set screws on the right side of the barrel opposite the 'chamber'. Second - the very back end of the barrel - it's knurled so you can take it apart for cleaning and inspection. That only gets "finger tightened" - correct?

Thanks again (and many thanks to come, I'm sure).

You got a good deal. They are good guns. Don't break it, you probably can't get parts.

If it breaks, buy yourself a Knight Wolverine.
