In Mississippi and a few other states, (not sure about FL) the single shot exposed hammer .45-70 Govt. can be used as a "primative weapon". The original .45-70s were only about 1200 fps and the bullets were 400-500 grain. Thousands of buffalo and Indians were killed with them. Loaded with a 325gr. JHP, exiting at 2025fps is deadly out past 300 yards. I'll likely never make a shot past 200, but it's nice to know I'm toting alot more than the average muzzle loader. I didn't "steal" this H&R, but the price was fair. Now, I gotta find a scope!

That's a big no in FL. :(
Glad to know that. I'll hunt in Florida one day, but I'm waiting on a particular event to occur before hunting here. At least I can shoot it during gun season legally here. :yes:
