building a new rifle for next year had a remington hepburn action sitting in a box that my dad gave me. never being one to hunt with the same gun twice(last year netted a nice spike with a box stock 91 argentine mauser carbine).ive decided this years deer,hog,bear gun to be 45-90 in black powder. have a green mountian tapered octagon barrel coming. long shots would be 200 where i hunt and most 50 yrd. the question is what length barrel? want it somewhat fast handling so was thinking 22" to 26" and jacketed, wax lubed or paper patched with soft lead which i hear flatten well anyone hunt with something like this.
