If you're sure it's a No. 5 action you should be alright. The No. 5 was designed for smokeless cartridges. I've got a No. 1 that has an old Numrich Arms conversion kit on it in .45/70 and I love shooting it. I download to about 1250 out of my chronograph. At 100 yds you can shoot then hear the hit just under a second later. With my inadequate eyesight I've shot about 2" groups with it on windless days benchrested. As for conversions, try asking some of the local cowboy shooters for references on this conversion as this is a good CAS or blackpowder cartridge silhouette round.
