Hi I'm bruce.,I use muzzleloaders from an 8bore to a .50 inline and am about to start getting into nitro muzzleloading ! I have an old Rem700 to I want to convert and a savage ml2 on the way. My 8 bore either uses 370grs Triple7 or around 80 grs 4759 and 120 grs Re17 with the 1350-1550 grainers. I recently acquired a stainless traditions lightning bolt .50 that had a muzzlebrake, for $75! I hunt mostly with my Vortek.50 and Knight Evolution with a 300gr .458 ballistic silvertip,orange MMP sabot, and 140 grs BH209 or 3 Alliant BlueMZ pellets.Im a deer hunter. So that is my introduction. I hope to post and learn.
