news update

I did a step forward and bought both Kentucky Long Rifle .50 and Lyman Great Plains Hunter (quick twist) Rifle in .50. I haven't made a decision yet, which one to keep and which one to return (if not both)... My short list also has Lyman GPR in .54, but I hoped longer barrelled .50 shooting a conical bullet through slightly longer barrel would have enough firepower for me to go even potential elk hunting. Of several stores in our area, only 1 carries stuff in .54, so that was a thing to consider for me.

I'll share my observations when both rifles get into the store.
