Savage is the only one that I'm aware if. Ibelieve that they just came out with a new (better) version of their smokeless powder muzzleloader.

Here it is:

For factory made gun the Savage 10ML II is going to be very hard to beat!

Mine is a SS Laminate model and shoots MOA to 200 yds consistently. Groups at 300 have always been under 5". The low BC bullets make wind drift a BIG deal. In zero wind conditions it will shoot moa at 300 as well!

When you need load help give me shout.

Here is the target I shot at my last range session.
Gun is sighted 3" high at 100yds.

Got to agree with Ian on the T/C and Knights.

I like the T/C encore because I can change barrels to any other caliber and packs in a small suitcase.

I like 777 powder but not the pellets. Pellets seem to have a major weight difference problem and unless you weigh them and match them up run into POI issues at longer ranges. Plus I have heard that the pellets deteriorate once opened while you can reseal the powder. I use premeasured 777 in quick loaders and just as fast.

Thanks so much for the time you and all others have spent to help educate me on this subject. A wise older man did tell me once "If you don't know what to do....do nothing" this may apply well in this case until I see clearly what would be best for me. I'll keep reading and looking. Thanks again to all!! And if anyone else has anything to share please feel free to add.

Mark; That Savage does look hard to beat for accuracy. That group is better than a lot of the locals can do with their HI-Power centerfire rifles.
Ian M; I wonder if this Savage was by chance 1 of the 38 you tested?? Thanks again.
