Which bullets do you think are a lot better?I intend to try the .45 maxi-hunters in my .45 Accura, 1:22 twist. (Found some NOS, also have a mould) I believe that the .50 maxi-hunters should shoot well in any 1:28 or 1:30 twist inline. I also believe that there are much better bullets available.
As with anything in life, there are no guarantees. But without trying, one never knows. Muzzleloaders are quirky, so you really have to experiment. Even the type of powder can make a difference. I shoot mostly real black, Goex, Old Ensyford and Swiss. I have discovered that each one shoots a bit different out of the same gun.So yall are saying is that there positively is a combination that that will make any rifle accurate as long as you are willing to try enough combinations of charges and powders?
Oh it's a rabbit hole alright. A long and surprisingly addictive rabbit hole. Hang around here too long and like most of us, you'll walk into your gun room and realize you have 8 or 10 different boxes of bulk bullets because one of them might work, between 4 and 10+ packs of the more expensive bullet/sabot packs because they were on clearance, more primers than you'll likely shoot in the next few years plus a few tins of caps because you do want to get a sidelock. And while you're putting away the 2 more boxes of XTP's you just bought because, well, they're XTP's, you'll look around and think "I probably need a second muzzleloader in case some of these bullets would shoot well in it. "Actually I was asking... Are there any of today's modern ones that are just not capable of shooting a group? How expensive is too expensive on having a selection of 3 or 5 different powders and then you add 6 or 14 different weights of projectiles and wads or so on and so on and so on. I can easily see an upcoming rabbit-hole adventure beginning to take place.
