Arrowhead barrel on a Remington 700 action. Leupold 4.5-14 mil dot. all wrapped up in a Magpul stock. Have to use the magazine to keep the module from dropping out. Target is sighting it in at 100. Using 300 grain XLD over IMR4198. First shot is 1 oclock. Next two were after adjustment was made. Going to be going out and tuning it up here in the next week or so.

i have a remington model 700 50cal muzzleloader never been fired is it possible to make it shoot like yours? Thanks TC
Are you talking the old 700ml or the newer Remington Ultimate Muzzleloader? If its the old Remington, then no. Not many builders are using that platform anymore. Loads are much less.

Now if you're talking the RUM, then absolutely you can have built anything that you'd like.

Just wondering your charge? If you'd rather not post it, please send it in a PM. Normally......... I don't shoot IMR4198 or H4198, but rather IMR8208XBR or Benchmark. I did pick up a couple pounds of the IMR4198 but haven't shot it yet. According to the information I have, somewhere right around 70grs should be real close. I'll do a Satterlee test if I ever shoot it.

Hey, folks! Just got my first smokeless muzzleloader into action today (100 yard sight-in) and since the season is upon us I thought it would be cool to start a ‘smokeless thread’. SO, LET’S SEE THOSE BUILDS 😁! Mine is a Jeff Hankins conversion from CVA Scout .45-70 to smokeless muzzleloader sporting Leupold Back Country rings and a Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40 (thanks @muskieman223 ). Stock and fore-end custom Cerakote in Kryptek by ‘Ricco’ at Black Dove Customs here in Kentucky and the Kydex cheek rest is from ‘Matthew’s Fabrication’.
For now I’m shooting Fury 275 grain Star Tip MZ’s and 275 grain Star Tip MZ ‘2P’s on top of 65 grains of IMR 4198 and a wool wad. Will update with target results as time permits. So, here’s mine….Now, show me yours!! 😂🤣😇

Here are a few 45 cal muzzleloaders I have built using hankins ignition system. I have messed with smokeless using 325 grain pittman Areomax bullets pushing them 3,100 fps. The 300 grain Areomax going 3,200 fps. Where I live it is not legal to use smokeless for hunting so I use blackthorn 209 with the 300 grain Areomax going 2,645 fps. Here are a few pictures of the three shot test groups. These are typical groups out of these rifles.
