I need a muzzle loader that can kill a deer up to 300 yards

I'm looking for muzzle loader that can shoot accurate to 250- 300 yards? And not a smokeless powder one.I thought a T/c encore or omega or triumph could do it,But I was wrong.I think maybe I was on the wrong forum to ask that question.I should of come on here and ask the pro's.My friend can shoot his knight great to 200 yards.The scope's they sell for muzzle loaders have lines to shoot 250-300 yards.And not the ulitimate muzzle loader either.

I have owned a TC encore Endeavor, a TC Omega, a Knigt Long Range Hunter, and an Ultimate Firearms BP Express. Have not owned any other brand so my data is from these brands. Any one of these can do 250-300 yards. Some will need a little work to get there but all can do it. If I had to do it all again, I would buy a Kight and never look back. I was the best value for the money in my opinion. The Omega bedded in a laminate stock would be my second choice.

The Knight Mk85 disk you mentioned would be good. If you wanted to avoid using the plastic primer holders or have the easy ability to use Blackhorn 209, Lehigh Bullets makes an excellent breech plug as well. Also, I would avoid a 45 caliber since they tend to be more finicky and have fewer bullets available when using sabots.

I just got back from a last second Nebraska ML hunt. We shot 6 deer all with a Triumph and a Omega. All of our shots were over 150 yards and two that were 254 and 280 yards. I was using Barnes 250 grain bullets with 150 grains of T7 pellets I was shooting 2154 FPS. I used the Leupold scope with SABR reticle made for that load, rifle shot easy 1 MOA out to 300 yards. funnest ML hunt I have ever been on

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!!!
