Re: Muzzleloaders and smokeless powders

Smi installs a ML'er barrel in the Ruger No.#1. With the announcement that Savage no longer will produce thier Sav ML'er-II smokeless ML'ers, And after the announcement they are drying up fast. These companies such as SMI,Pac-Nor, And new guys on the block McGowan barrels will be seeing more work. A popular conversion is a 45 Cal barrel on a Rem 700 ML'er action by Pac-Nor. Never ever use smokeless powder in any ML'er. It must say smokeless powder. Don't listen to those who say you can shoot smokeless in a BP gun, you can't if you do it becomes a 1 shot affair along with causing some real physical damage like loosing a hand or your eye sight. To answer the question as too the ram rod no problem get a colapsable ram rod problem solved. Good Hunting Lou

Re: Muzzleloaders and smokeless powders

There is a lot of information out there regarding smokeless MLers. The key is first using a barrel that is up to the task and designed for smokeless and second, using a breechplug like the Henry Ball/Savage uses that will not allow excess pressure back into the action.

Anyone dumb enough to use smokeless in a ML not designed for it...well if your going to be dumb you better be tough.

Re: Muzzleloaders and smokeless powders

There is no need to use smokless powder in a ML since the introduction of Blackhorn 209. If you dont know about BH 209 then do a little research on it. It is by far the best powder ever produced for MLs. You can shoot and shoot and shoot and dont have to clean the barrel until you are finished shooting. No more swabbing between shots and cleaning after every 4 or 5. It is also very accurate
