Justified, are you going to buy a rifle or build one?
(Or have one built)
For one built to your specs you can have many more options.
Factory 50 cals are usually very heavy. Not a problem if you don't have to carry it up a lot of mountains, but for those that do a lot of foot work getting into their hunt areas, a lighter rifle is a wonderful thing.

If you build, you have the options of;
Caliber.
Length
Weight
Straight barrel
Swamped barrel
Tapered barrel
Rifling geometry
Rifling depth
Rifling twist.
Left or right handed rifle
Type of sights.
Placement of sights
Half stock
Full stock
Flint lock
Cap-lock
Wood and grade of wood.
And a lot more.
