I have an unfired 1859 Pedersoli Sharps carbine in the for sale section if you are interested.

In case anybody cares, I'm about done checking in here to Calguns looking for a good blackpowder subforum. There are certainly other alternatives.

Considering that most of calguns is preoccupied with buying more guns than they shoot, figuring out where they can get their keylock handguard hydro dipped to match their plate carrier, arguing about Travis Haley's trigger discipline, and looking cool while shooting a target 5 feet away with a rifle it's not a surprise that the blackpowder area is a bit lacking compared to another (more specific) board.

By all means, stick around and peruse the 2A forums on occasion though.

Anyone here shoot BPCR sillouette? They have a match every first Saturday in Ione at Sac valley range.
I just picked up a pedersole Boss in 45-2 7/8"..45-110, going to shoot paper patch as always up for a challenge.
I have a few pounds of BP which seems to be the hardest thing to get around Sacramento area. Most places want you to buy a case and for people like me on a fixed income that is a lot of money to lay out at one time.
If there is anyone else in Sacramento area that is interested in BPCR silhouette and needs some powder and would like to split cost on a case let me know. I am sticking with Fg for the cartridge I have and most places will mix a case.
Let me know if your interested.

All my blackpowder firearms are cartridge loaded. Would be nice to have a separate forum.

I can see where a black powder forum could be useful and I can see where it could be a pain in the ***. Firstly, the topic includes two centuries of original firearms and a century of clones of these. The sub topics alone are diverse enough to overlap into other forums and cause mischief: muzzleloading, cartride handguns, cartridge rifles, CAS, long-range competition rifles, collecting. ie: I want to use 3031 bulk powder to develop a load for my original Remington .44-77 roling block. This subject could be categorized several ways.

I say let's try it and see what happens -

Long range target, Thor and other conicals, blackhorn, traditional Hawken builds, the fact that the average muzzle loader front sight bead will cover an elephant's *** at 50 yards, out of state regs, patch n ball... draws... barrels, in lines... Let's get it going. Lots of ideas for front stuffers.

I use muzzleloadingforum.com when I discuss/look for information on muzzle loading. You must join to see the threads but it does not cost anything. While I support the effort of breaking off and having a separate forum, I am not sure how active it will be here on CG compared to other designated sites like the one I posted.

It so hard to find threads for BP in the forums, how about instead of just Black powder have a Muzzle loaders Forum and a cartridge forum, I think that would make everyone happy...

wasn't thinking straight here..
OK
Black powder forum with all related sub forums....
