    Mike-
    Found some data in the Accurate Loading Guide #2 on the .50-110 Sharps. It's .100 longer than the Win, .014 larger at the base, loads not the same as those for the Win as noted in C.O.T.W.
    All powder is 5744.

    360 gr. lead fn- starting- 42.3 gr., vel-1657, max-47 gr., 1884 fps, 26,900 psi.

    450 gr. lead fn- starting- 40.5 gr., vel-1519, max- 45 gr., 1727 fps, 26,400 psi.
    Firm crimp is necessary for good powder ignition.

    Strange, they don't list the .50-110 Winchester.

    Looks like they goofed on the next larger bullet, probably mean the 460 or 485 gr., but they say it's also a 450 gr. ???
    They also show a 515, a 555 and a 700 gr Brooks, a paper patched bullet.
