I have a 45/70,45/90,45/110 and a 45/120 and the 45/110 is my favorite for hunting and the
45/120 is the best long range cartrige for the Sharps.
The 50/140 was a power house but brass is all most none existent and terribly expensive.
You can buy the 45 basic(3.25") and make any of the 45s with it.
I use 777 to get the equivalent of 120grains of black powder in the 45/120 with normal bullet
seating (Cases will not hold 120 grains unless you paper patch the bullets and seat them long.
In the 45/110 I use the Shockleys. If you use black powder have a can/jar of water with a little
soap handy and drop the brass in it as soon as you fire it to save the brass.
They are fun to shoot and can be surprisingly accurate at 800 to 1000 yards.
