Product Description

October Country 8 Bore English Sporting rifle 

The most powerful traditional muzzleloader rifle manufactured today!!

Power at the EXTREME. This is an AWESOME rifle.

There is no more fatal policy in hunting dangerous game than the contempt of the animal, exhibited by a selection of a weapons of inferior caliber. Common sense should be your guide, and surely it requires no extraordinary intelligence to understand that a Dangerous Game requires a big round ball and a big round ball requires a corresponding charge of powder, which necessitates a HEAVY RIFLE.- Sir Samuel White Baker, Wild Beast and there  ways.

October Country rifles are designed after the works of Lt James Forsythe, MA in his book "The Sporting Rifle and its Projectiles" Rifles are patterned after the works of the finest English rifle makers of the 19TH century. Famous big game hunters like Forsythe, Baker, Sellous, and Finaughty knew the power developed by big bore round ball guns. When rifled in accordance with Lt. Forsythe theory by utilizing ultra slow twist rifling. This rifle can produce devastating power and amazing accuracy with raw knock down power.

There is nothing, in my opinion, superior to the spherical hardened bullet with a heavy charge of powder. The friction is minimized, the velocity is accordingly increased, and the hard round ball neither deflects nor alters its form, but cuts through intervening branches and goes direct to it aim, breaking bones and keeping a straight course through the animal. THIS MEANS DEATH "Sir Samuel White Baker
