    Default Your powder and bullet combo

    Just looking to see what everyone’s preferred combinations are.

    Ive been using triple 7 150gr with the 250gr shock waves with no problems for over ten years or so.
    Looking into switching over to blackthorn 209 and maybe a new bullet (Scorpion PT Gold or Parker ballistic extreme 300gr).

    2 triple 7 pellets, 1 SST 300gr bullet and a triple 7 primer lets my CVA Wolf shoot a 1" group at 100 yds....

    Cast round balls in .50 and .54 cal. Patched with .018 denim over 70 grains of ffg Goex and a sprinkling of fffg in the pan. LOL

    I and some others have had great results on 50 cal Thompson Center in-lines (known to have tighter bore then others) with the following recipe:
    90 gr Blackthorn 209 (volumetric), 250 Shockwave slugs in BLACK sabot, CCI 209 primers.

    100gr of Pyrodex RS under a .490 patched round ball hits to the sights at 50 yards and a decent group too, better than expected going up that high in powder, this is ignited with a CCI No 11 cap.

    I hope to see how it performs on deer in December.

    100grs Blackhorn 209, 250gr Barnes Spitfire TMZ, Nikon inline XR with BDC on a TC Impact. I am comfortable out to 200 yds with this set up.
