Well,got tired of fooling with my savage 10ML,and it not shooting good..I caved to the peer pressure over on dougsmessage board,and ordered a 45cal pacnor barrel..It is expected to ship in 2 weeks time,so I should have it plenty in time for out muzzleloader season..I probably won't even buy a rifle tag this year..Just a list of what I tried with my Savage 10ML...


Powders I tried...

Reloder 7
Vhitivhouri N110 & N120
AA5744

Bullets I tried....

.452 250gr & 300gr Hornady XTP
.452 250gr Hornady FTX
.458 300gr hornady HP
.458 300gr Remington HP

Sabots I tried....

Orange MMP sabots
short black MMP sabots
Harvester black and red crush rib sabots
Harvester smooth black sabots
MMP HPH12 sabots

I spent a small fourtune trying to get this gun to shoot good,and the best I ever got was right at 1.5 inches at 100yds..I figure for a $600 muzzleloader,it should shoot alot better than 1.5 inches..

I's to late for you but a common problem is the front scope base overlaping the ring at the back of the barrel. Also, the screws that hold the action can be tricky to adjust. The guns are good but can be a pain to get to shoot. I've owned two of them.

The scope base wasn't touching the barrel nut.

Its a shame you had to go through that but you'll have a heck of a shooter with the Pac Nor. Who are you having do the barrel swap?
