Last weekend on Saturday we had 80 weather them Sunday it snowed 2" yes I'm tired of the winter stuff.
This stuff is very addicting and very expensive. Good luck with your set up I can wait to see your long range reports!
I had quite a long conversation with Bob Parker a few days back. What a great and knowledgeable guy
. I also found out that Bob has three Ultimate muzzleloaders. Bob explained to me, that with the Ultimate, the MH was only a target bullet, NOT a hunting bullet. Although his Ultimate shoots the MH extremely well, the Ultimate doesn't give the velocity needed to expand the MH properly on game. Bob told me he can hold a 2" 400yd group with his Ultimate, shooting 160grs VOLUME of BH209 and MH's. That's damn good shoot'n from a "smoke belcher"! So if its target shooting, the MH would be the best bullet of his to shoot.
I prefer to shoot the bullet I intend to hunt with and perfect it and myself. I ordered 100 BE's, 50 of them 275gr and 50, 300gr. Bob uses the MMP short black, so 100 of them also, along with a spin jag designed for the BE. Take note: The MH requires a special loading jag for that pointed bullet.
I also have 100 of Ultimate's "Whitetail Medicine" bullets on the way. I'm hoping like heck, the bullets come today in the mail, as this afternoon would be a great day to head to the gun club range. The next few days are all rain......
Addicting and expensive? No kidding
Not just with the necessities but, with all the "extras". The wife is keeping an eagle eye on me lately. One of the extras that I'll be getting sooner or later, will be this Infrared Digital Thermometer gun with laser pointer Measuring Tool:bearingtools
for summer shooting. It will be interesting to read the barrel temps in relation to maintaining accuracy. Which reminds me, I need to create a spreadsheet to maintain data............ So much to do, so little time
