50-90 Sharps CIP vs current fad(s)

Post by bohemianway » Wed Feb 17, 2021 7:59 pm

I am going to rebarrel a Saddle rifle (light 26" 45-90 why?) with a 50 cal. 1.25" octagon and am wondering the pro's/con's of a CIP reamer vs Shiloh vs whatever? I will most likely stick to Grease Groove bullets. I am a Shuetzen shooter so it would be nice to get reasonable accuracy (potential). And, probably run all three (smokeless, black, and Duplex). Please enlighten me.

THank you,
Charles

charles,
if you shoot scheutzen you are going the wrong way.
that discipline is about sheer accuracy.
while 50 cal is no less accurate than any other, achieving it with heavy recoil is very difficult.
38/55 is good and 32/40 is better.
what do you mean by cip chamber.
not sure that cip or saami has specs for this cartridge.
bruce.

Charles, are you asking Kirk a question or the the board? The support section is for Shiloh to answer. If you want the board members to chime in I would choose a different category.
