Re: Do You Hunt With A Muzzleloader?

I have a 45 MacGowen on one of my guns and shoot a 275be Parker sabotless. I load it with 69gr of IMR4198 and a wool wad and a Win209 primer. You on Doug's Message Board?

GOD YES!!! The muzzle loading season in Nebraska is a whole month versus the rifle season which is only nine days. I do most of my big game hunting with the muzzle loader and a bow!

I will, not yet. Have a CVA Accura V2 but I'm tricking it a bit right now.

Re: Do You Hunt With A Muzzleloader?

I hunt with a Savage 10ML-II SST/LAM that is designed to use smokeless powder. Shooting NON-SAVAGE loads using NON-SAVAGE recommended powders I can launch a 290 grain Barnes T-MZ at around 2450fps MV or a Barnes 245 Spitfire at about 2560fps MV. I also use my Encore 209x50 and have enjoyed superb results using BH 209 BP sub. I have fired well over 1500 shots out of my Encore prior to using BH 209 and the first ever 3 shots I fired out of my Encore using 150grns of BH 209 and a saboted .451" 300grn XTP tied my past best ever 100yrd 3-shot group using 3-F/777.

If I have to use a BP sub or wish to hunt with my Encore I will only use BH 209. It is IMHO opinion based on 1500+ shots, the BP sub that will give you the best possable and consistant accuracy and the highest velocities of ANY non-smokeless BP sub.

Applied for Cow Elk Muzzleloader, NV Resident
Mule Deer Muzzleloader, NV Resident
Just picked up my first MZ loader. Encore Pro Hunter Endeavor.50cal. Love it..
IMR Whitehots no good, compared to 777....
If all goes well, might consider it for NM Oryx hunt on WSMR. If I draw..
Shooting paper till then.

Round balls and Patches over 90 gr of 3F in my old Hawkin copy from Track of the wolf......................................13 bucks to it credit.

I feel that the Muzzle loader needs to be kept as a Buck Horn sighted close range hunting rifle...........................No scopes etc, etc ,etc
