Super 91 how do you prepare the bullets? Resize and knurl?
No prep needed at all. The bullets are .452 and the bore is .451. They ever so slightly engrave on the way down, and fully obdurate into the rifling when fired. Makes for a very accurate bullet as it is fairly centered in the bore when seated.
My smokepole of choice is a TC Encore 209X50. Unfortunately,I didn't draw a muzzleloader tag this year. The state of Nevada doesn't make it easy to hunt with a smokepole either.....open sights only....
Have hunted with both caplock and in-line. In caplocks used for primative hunting I use a Lyman Great Plains in 50 cal. Rifling is 1 in 60" (about perfect for round bal, I use .498" that I cast myself) with either 100 grs(by volume) of Pyrodex Select or 90grs (by volume) of Pyrodex P (like FFFg). 100grs is most accurate in my Lyman and perfect for silloutes at 200 yrds. Rather slow ignition for hunting but have killed two elk with this load. (both under 100yrds. 90 grns of P better hunting load killed numerous mule deer with this load. I have glass bedded the Lyman.
Inline is stainless Thompson Firehawk and a load of 80 grs of select and a 2-7 scope lets it shoot like a highpower. I use .45cal SWC 200 gr bullets with black plastic sabot.
I prefer the lyman and made it from a kit purchased from Midsouth.
Also have a thompson Senaca in .45 cal and a Pedersole full stock in .45 cal and a Lyman Plains pistol (round ball and 50 grs of Pyrodex P).
