Sorry guys, I was youth-hunting all weekend, scope, rings, and base all came last week, got everything all mounted up, it's ready to go. I just didn't have time to shoot because of tmy juvi's. IF I can get home before dark tonight, we're gonna go boom. I will shoot this week sometime because my boy is using it this Saturday for his 1'st ML hunt ever.

Was planning to shoot this afternoon but had a DR's appt., had a couple pre-cancer spots on my face and he froze them off, looks like I've been badly beaten in a bar fight. No shooting happening today. I did weigh up some charges tonight though, so I'm ready. I'm gonna try 40 grains of N-110, Hornady 200 SST's, and the Harvester light blue sabots. This should be a fairly mild load for my son. Should still be moving about 2325 feet per second, which is 200 fps more than a 120 grain load of Blackhorn 209 would do, with much less recoil.

I was lookin at smokeless ML's on the web today and I ran across some load info for the BadBull ML's. They use 100 grains of 4350. That's gotta pack one heck of a punch.

Pretty sure he bought the barrel directly from Thompson Center's custom shop and had SMI do the breech plug install. Unless they have recently changed, TC's custom shop isn't accepting orders. http://www.tcarms.com/customShop/

Robert Young (Slufoot) can do the breech plug install on a factory TC or Bergara 45-70 barrel with a Savage breech plug. He isn't a member on tndeer but he can be reached on doug's message boards ( http://dougsmessageboards.proboards.com/board/23 ) if you register over there. It's a great place to learn about smokeless muzzleloading.
