Austin Halleck 320 S/N 50 cal. Black Powder

Black Powder Manufacturer: Austin Halleck
Austin Halleck Model: 320 S/N 50 cal.
Review Category: Black Powder

Purchase: Black Powder Purchased through the Austin Halleck website as they are going out of business for $265. After reading several reviews of the gun, I was convinced it would be a good quality gun, especially for the price.

Things I like about the Austin Halleck 320 S/N 50 cal. Black Powder: I LOVE THIS GUN! First I like the fact that it comes complete with a gun case, the rifle, disassembly tools, manual, and a short starter. It also comes with a T/C 209 primer nipple, musket cap nipple, and #11 cap nipple. These three nipples are the standard ones you can find at any outdoor or shooting shop. Everything you need except for a powder measure and of course bullets and powder. I have shot about 80 rounds out of the rifle with several types of bullets and have been very happy. In Colorado during muzzleloader season, you cannot use scopes, pellotized powder, or sabots. I worked up a load using 90 grains of 777 powder and 348 grain hollow point Powerbelts and shot a 2 1/2 inch, three shot group at 100 yards with the iron sights. Actually the sights are the fiber optic sights (I think they are called Tru Glow sights) and are great. Disassembly of the gun is easy and cleaning is fairly easy. I have worked up a load for the Precision Bullets, Colorado bullet shooting a 1 1/2 inch group at 50 yards with the iron sights. I am taking it elk hunting this year and I know I will have an elk if I can get within 100 yards of one. Great gun!

What I don't like about the Austin Halleck 320 S/N 50 cal.: Nothing really. Accurate gun, easy to maintain, and looks sharp. Recoil is much less than the 54 caliber Great Plains Hunter sidelock I hunted with last year.

Black Powder 320 S/N 50 cal. quality: Quality of the rifle is superb. The gun case is a bit cheap but does the job well. I am sorry to see Austin Halleck going out of business, but was happy to get the gun at a little more than 1/2 the normal price.

320 S/N 50 cal. summary: The Austin Halleck 320 S/N 50 caliber is a great gun. Very accurate, shoots everytime, and will not kill your shoulder after a day at the range. As the company is going out of business, the price is great for this quality, but you may want to pick up an extra breach plug and universal hammer in case these wear out over time.
