I'm looking for muzzle loader that can shoot accurate to 250- 300 yards? And not a smokeless powder one.
What is wrong with the Savage ML-II loaded with Accurate 5744(something along the lines of 40-ish grains with a 250gr sabot)?
I guess you could dump three of those pellet things down the tube and cover them up with the same projectile and get the same results? But the mess....either way, I've hit pumpkins(about the size of basketballs) to about 250-275yards with both loads above.
Also have the regular T/C Encore .50. I've not had the chance to get anything beyond 100yards in front of it. But those groups are tiny?!? Got a pretty good close-out deal on some Triple7 some years ago and the set-up enjoys 2-50's plus 1-20 grain pellet loads(120gr total) with a 250gr T/C projectile. When I run out of those pellets, I'll be grabbing that new Buckhorn209 stuff and playing with that....hoping it'll be as good? The T/C Encore 50 averages .75 to 1.0 inch at 100.................
Keep 'em clean and shoot 'em alot!!!
