    With a good barrel, well cut chamber, and the right bullet you can get a .38-55 to work very well with black powder. I think you'll find that the Shiloh will out do your other .38-55 rifles by a considerable margin, as long as you are using the right bullet with the right brass.

    As an example here is a target I shot with my CPA at 223 yards. Of twelve shots ( including a cold bore fouling shot ), nine of them went into under a minute of angle at that distance.

    Mind you, this was a breech seated bullet which, most of the time, has a higher accuracy potential.

    Thanks Edward. I had it for a few years before I finally figured out how to make it shoot
