I'm a neophyte to ML, but have shot 7mm Rem mag for years,primarily for Elk in Washington state. I'm considering a Lyman Deerstalker,.54cal,1:32 twist, stainless. Two questions: as a left handed shooter, is there too much flash from the percussion cap to comfortably shoot a right handed gun? Since "jacketed" bullets are illegal in WA, sabots aren't allowed. Are "maxi-ball",and "maxi-hunter" by T/C considered to be jacketed? How about copper-clad bullets? What other bullet/load combinations would be good for elk? Thanks for any info.
