    Nice build!

    Smokeeter is is a man in the know.

    All I can say is make the plunge to sabotless and watch your groups drop. Full Form is best IMO.

    I will also point out that sabotted shooting to 300 that is repeatable every time you go out in the field is something I have yet to witness. As you pointed out the sabot is the issue.

    Sabotless takes care care of that problem.

    Presumeably you have gone with a small shank barrel - you know you have to watch your loads right? Or did you go nutless with the 1.25 barrel tenon?

    That is now an option but a gunny needs to do the headspace.

Also Im waiting for the cooler weather to come I find with this humidity and temps its changes things alot . Also thanks for the compliant on the build.

    They will need your gun as even though Brux are incredibly consistent, small differences do exist. You are a ways from me but if you make the trip with your gun I’ll give you a hand.

    When you full form those weather conditions have little to no effect.

    Last season out our group of 4 I was the only one using a smokeless gun (Savage 10ML ii). This season 3 out of 4 will be using the Savage 10ML ii.

    I believe have corrupted the group...lol

    I predict member #4 will soon upgrade as well...

    I tueley believe it is the way to go also not taking anything away from the traditional muzzle loader and the people who use them as with anything that progress over time why not take advantage of it
