    That’s just not fair. I wonder if muzzle loader bullets can ship to Canada. I know ignition systems etc are not a problem. But I do know I can’t order Center fire bullets like Berger for example.

    Sorry. I know you're not the first of our good northern neighbors to question "why".

    I believe there are two barrel blank options from Luke: One is a Brux, the other is an MGM made blank they call the preferred blank I believe. From what I understand the Brux is the better of the two barrels but Luke has stated somewhere online that the MGM preferred blank is quite good.

    TCs often have tight bores. use BH 209 and TMZ-EZ spitfire bullets. That sabot is a little smaller and works well in TC barrels. BH 209 from 90-110 grains

    BountyHunter I agree on the tight bore. If I’m lucky after one shot I can load another without a spit patch and get to my witness mark. Tried the Hornady SST years ago. Couldn’t push them down a clean barrel. Still having a dilemma of buying a smokeless encore barrel or build a gun. Think I found some Remington SA. Gunsmith who just built my 6 Dasher is wanting to build a new SM so maybe he could build me one too.

    The spitfire EZ bullets will work and open like a buzz saw exactly like the pics.
