I bought a Knight Extreme .50cal. I topped it with a Leupold Ultimate Slam.I shot bulleye at 100 yard,but did not have a chance to try at 300yards yet because I had a heart stop for 8 second and they installed a Pacemaker on april20 2011so I could not shoot till October.I plan on making a lot of shooting in 2012.

Re: Long-Range Muzzleloading- Which bullets/powders/sabots to try? Ian?

I have owned this very rifle since 2006 and have set up at least 5 friends and relatives with the same rifle. My knowledge is based on the info you can get at the doug's proboard site. All the rifles I have set up for long range seem to like certain loads:

300 gr Barnes Original/Harvester black crush rib/ 67 or 68 gr H4198 or 60 gr N120, with Fed 209A or WW209 primer.
300 gr SST's or Bonded Shockwaves work just as well in my gun, but the Barnes Original is a tougher bullet.
290 gr Barnes TMZ's are a tough bullet, but the accuracy is not there after 200 yds.
Some guys have been having great luck with the Hornady 325 gr FTX but I have had no need to try them.

Muzzle velocity for the above loads is 2350(N120) to 2400(H4198). These guns have been shooting about 1-1.25 MOA. I sight in at 200, the drop is about 16"at 300 yds.
Hope this helps,
Sliceman

Re: Long-Range Muzzleloading- Which bullets/powders/sabots to try? Ian?

Hello, I am new here to the forum. I love muzzleloader everything about it. I am currently shooting the jacketed hydra con 300 grain. Parker makes in my opinion the best there is and can make anything one may need to work as well. I see the savage is on the list of favorits here anf the Match Hunter 300 and 325 are also bullets that require faster fps w/ huge bc to speak of. Bob Parker is from Idaho and if you never herd of him just type in Parker bullets and go from there. Thanks

I forgot to mention that i am from Vermont and currently shooting the Omega w/ a little Blackhorn. I also just bought one of the newer Redfields and recommend that as well. I am here to learn and help out any way I can.
