    As far propellants I use pellets for the convenience and no other reason. Still have all my old loose powder and measures and all that in case I want to shoot the Renegade.

    Nice looking ML. Good luck on your draw hunt!
    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    Oh yeah, you've got to love the miss fires. My first chance at shooting a deer was with my muzzleloader. I say chance, because the cap was the only thing to go off. I shoot my muzzleloader after the weekend hunt, and I usually end up with at least one miss fire.

    I agree, these new muzzleloaders are definitely more reliable. And I do really like the speed at which they can be reloaded. They're some really nice weapons.

    I've seemed to have accumulated several over the years for whatever reason lol. SxS 12g percussion shotgun, T/C in line 50, Knight Thumbhole 50, Savage MLII Smokeless 50, .45 cal Flintlock, .50 cal Flintlock and my dad's old CVA percussion .50 cal kit gun serial #000010 lol.

    Going to be doing the .50 cal flintlock thing this year I think.

    I’ve pretty much gone Savage smokeless. Bought it many years ago in the first or second year they were made.
    Previous was a TC Hawken in .54 cal. It would shoot minute of hay bale on its best day.
    I didn’t know much about MZ loading in those days. I was using a conical bullet when a round ball should have been used, so the inaccuracy was my issue. Never had an issue with misfire though. Drilled out the flash hole a few thousands. Just that small of a difference resulted in enough back pressure that the hammer auto-cocked after every shot and blew off the percussion cap.

    I agree that inserting a 209 without the capping tool is next to impossible. I’ve lost them and or left them in the truck and got very frustrated trying to cap.

    My .50 is scoped and a ringer. 210g Thompson Center Cheap Shot lead Sabots over 110g of Goex FFg will Mickey Mouse at 100y. I wanna take it to 200y and see how it patterns (never shot over 150y with it). I’ve got no issue shooting at 150y with it. The .54 is open sight and shoots 425g Traditions lead conicals with a patch wad over 95g of Goex FFg. 100y is max rage I’d shoot it right now. I wanna scope it and have it as an option for my kids. The states only youth ML elk hunt is just south of us.
