    Here are 2 pic's of my 50 cal Ultimate Muzzle loader 200yrd groups. One has a 2 shot one it(I yanked the trigger, threw it left) The other is a 3 shot group. Both groups are 285 gr Barnes SBT with 200 grains or Pyrodex pellits. Ignition is a 45 Win mag case with Federal Large Rifle Primer. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm impressed 2 shots from a .50 muzzel loader and you can cover them with a dime. You dont see that often.

    Its made by Ultimate Firearms. www.ultimatefirearms.com. Mine is built on a Howe 1500 action, Lothar barrel 1/26 twist. It will shoot consistant MOA groups, Trying alot of different loads to see which will be best for distant. Its a toss up between the 285 Barnes Spit Fires and the T/C Shock waves(Hornady SST's with different sabot). 200 grains of Pyrodex pellets. They make it with a Rem 40x action and a aluminum bedding block. So far very impressed with the gun. Have close to 300 rounds through it already and its only 2 months old.

    Yes sir, even shot 250 out of it. They rate it for 300 safely.

    I don't have the issue, my buddy that has the 40x action does, but he was telling me that in the May issue of American Hunter there is a acticle that Randy Johnson(Owner) shot 300 grains out of his gun, which is a Howe. I will never try 300 grains, tried 250, will stick with 200. I am very impressed with this gun. I don't have the bedding block in mine but plan on bedding it this weekend. Waiting on my Farrell 10moa bases.
