Re: Knight Muzzle loaders
Just got a Knight Mountaineer a couple of weeks ago... my TC Prohunter wasn't doing very well with the heavy conicals so i thought i'd try one. It was supposed to have a free floating barrel but didn't. The laminated stock had material remaining at the forend (assuming it was left there for a pressure point ?) Maybe my version of free floating is differnt from Knights.... When tightening the action bolt you could "feel" how much the stock was flexing under the pressure. Anyway, i bedded the "action" area and ground out the forend material for a full float prior to shooting it. I'm just sarting load development but it looks very promising at this point( i'm in CO- no sabots) I like the bolt/breech plug setup.. absolutely no blowback with the 209's. All cleaning is from breech plug forward. Loading the primer is a little trickier than with hinged guns but not bad. All in all, so far i like it. Different, but in a good way!
