Default H & R/ NEF Black Powder

Hello, I'm new here so here it goes:
I suppose that this has been discussed before, but would like to know if any one has worked up a load for the H&R/NEF .50

First off welcome to the forum
I have the nef hertage( it is a sidekick with a camo stock). Mine likes 90 grains of 777 and winchester platnum tip sabots but i keep my shots less than 100 yards. If you do a search here on the forum you will find tons of info on NEF's. http://www.huntingnet.com/forum/searchpro.aspx?phrase=sidekick&author=&for umid=26&topicreply=both&message=body&t imeframe=%3E&timefilter=-365&language=single&top=300&criteria=A ND&submitbutton=+OK+

Thanks for the tips, have been shooting a T/C Hawken for a lot of years, mostly w/patched round ball.
50 cal 110 gr 2f, w/pillow ticking.
I have been messing around with the H&R .50 cal, pyrodex, and sabots (new methods).
This gun started as a .243 Handi rifle, but added some barrels.

Will note the past posts and pick up some "New Supplies".
Thanks
