Hi Guy's my wife just bought me a brand new muzzleloader.
After I came too, I noticed she hooked me up big time.
Its an Elkhorn pro magnum with Bushnell Banner dusk and dawn 4x12x40 scope, new gun case, and all new toys to go with it.
My question is has anyone had this gun before and if so whats the best load for it.
Right now im shooting PB AT's 245 grain with 120 grains of loose
pyrodex RS powder. My groupings are 50 yds one hole, 100 yds 3 holes less than an inch apart, 150 yds 3 holes with 3in circle, and 200 yds 3 holes in 5in circle. Sorry it took two shots to zero it in. I spit swab after every shot too.
To me that sounds and looks great for the first bullets and powder combo. What ya'll think

Sounds like you found the right load for it. Take it to the woods.

ok color me stupid but i shot at a nice 10 point sunday afternoon at 330 with this gun
AND MISSED
i took it back to my range and its spray gunning
powder still 120 grains same powerbelt bullets 245 grains but accuracy went south in a hurry
What could cause this?
Brother in law says "Scope is crap, and you cant shoot" but i can shoot and always use some kind of rest when deer hunting
could scope be trashed?
