Pretty stout load for a rifle. Way too much for a pistol. You have to be blowing out a lot of unburned powder.

Oh, don't I know it, but, Lordy, the flash and bang it made at twilight! Oh, did I mention I was a lot younger and dumber at the time?

TC's Scout pistol was rated for over 100gr.  Different gun, I understand, and it is pointless to load that much because it will never burn all that powder in 10-12" or barrel, but there are pistol that can handle it.  I'm just not sure CVA ever made one of them.

The ones with 40" barrels do fine.  :P

The barrel is one inch across the flats and is basicly a Hawken barrel cut down to pistol length. Just finished up making a german silver buttcap for it out of a silver serving spoon. Antique store near me sells loose silverplated flatware for two bucks apiece, it's worth that for the german silver. Out of the same spoon, I made a thumb plate and silver bracelet.

" I have loaded it up to 120 gr of FF behind a 290ish gr minie. OMG, the blast and recoil were awesome, but at 1 inch across the flats, I figured it was strong enough to take it."
Yeah, the barrel can take it, but those pistols have a reputation for breaking at the grip under heavy loads. I drilled a hole under the tang down into the grip and glued in a snug fitting dowel in my pistol like that.
