I have a syn stock and it is pretty flimsy. But the gun shoots pretty well if you allow it to cool between shots, as has been stated. I get best performance using the 5744, orange MMP sabots, and .458 300gr hornady, but have had success with the 300gr SST (or variant) and the black long sabot. My barrel must be a bit tight though, as the latter combo is VERY hard for me to load if I use the tighter sabot, and the looser sabots that I bought from MMP don't hold up well, leading to keyholing.

Like you, I didn't buy it for a long rnage shooter, but to avoid the nasty cleanup and rusting of BP or substitutes. Also, it is cheaper to shoot in the long run.

Heck no! There is no need. I leave mine loaded all season if I don't shoot, just remove the cap.

I have never shot at a deer with a hot muzzleloader barrel but you never know when one might jump out at the shooting range and I cant get to the woods fast enough before my barrel cools off. He is telling you right about the barrel cooling off so it does not melt the sabot before you shoot I shoot 10 gr n110 with 60gr 4198 250sst black sabot and nothing compares NOTHING Ive owned t/cs and i would never go back even to the knight that a thought i loved

If it is anything like mine it will. My Savage barely has any recoil at all.
