I have a question for the muzzleloading pro’s. Since I was 17 years old, I’m 42 now, I have used a T/C Renegade 50 cal. muzzleloader with tremendous success. 350 gr. T/C Maxi Hunter, 110 gr. FFF and a musket cap was pure hell on anything softball sized out to 100 yards. I love the rifle! I have owned and traded/sold off several other muzzleloaders during this time because I just couldn’t get them to shoot as good as my O’le Rene (actually, I wouldn't put forth the effort to try and make them shoot is the truth of it), so I’ve just stayed in the “dark ages”, so to speak. With a little age on my eyes and a bout with Type 2 diabetes has made it hard for me to stick with my iron sights. . .and I can’t bring myself to scope this rifle. Recently I was out and came across a stainless muzzleloader barrel (not the Weather Shield) for my Encore frame, still in the package and the man was asking $75.00 for it – yup, I snatched it up! So now that I have come “into the light” with a scoped inline muzzleloader I want to pick your brains. I reload for several different centerfire rifles and know that each one favors its own load, but is there any "muzzleloading" science behind using a .44 cal. bullet over a .45 cal. bullet in a sabot. . .is one inherently more accurate over the other? I have on hand 3 jugs of the Blackhorn 209 powder and all sorts of .44 and .45 caliber bullets for different guns I load for. . .I was kind of thinking to start with either a 265gr. .430 or a 250gr. .452 Hornady Flextip in some sort of sabot, maybe the Harvester or MMP brands. I will also be shooting my powder charges by weight (@ .7 x vol.) to keep things in check. Any suggestions from you guys with experience with this rifle and is there a real accuracy advantage to using one bullet diameter over the other? Sorry for the long drawn out post, but I just had to put it all out there for you. Thanks in advance!
