Re: Muzzleloaders and smokeless powders

There are people out there using smokeless powder in muzzleloaders other than a savage model 10II I hear about and I have seeing photograph of guns they have blowed up. Every time a group of us guy gets together and starts talking about muzzleloaders the smokeless question always come up I believe a person could build a custom 45 caliber muzzleloader that could use in taking the pressure that smokeless powder produced but currently the only gun you should put smokeless in is the savage.

Re: Muzzleloaders and smokeless powders

Brent, Quaken...

I have been building smokless muzzle loaders for many years, i simply use a Rem Rolling block action, a high pressure bbl in 45 0r 50 cal. 50 is the most popular.
They are fired with a 209 primer, 27 grns of 2400 powder. Tack drivers !!! Elk at 200 yds the barnes X muzzel loader sabo round will go through with lots of damage.

There is a pic of one i built on my website. web page
Birdseye maple stock,,Douglas Stainless bbl, half octagon, half round.

Re: Muzzleloaders and smokeless powders

Hey thanks for posting my pic Quaken.

This was made for a friend of mine and he has taken some nice bucks with it. If i can remember it was around 1400.00 been about 8 years ago. It all depends if you can supply a Rem Rolling Block action. Any questions just send me a email.

Re: Muzzleloaders and smokeless powders

The idea I have is to take a Ruger No. 1 in 458 Winchester magnum and do nothing more then install a breechplug. The hardest thing would be to install a ramrod because the mounting for the forearm is in the center. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
