Do yourself a big favor from the get-go:

Go with Blackhorn 209 Powder (only available in powder).
Buy regular Federal 209 shotgun primers to ignite it (not those "muzzleloader" 209 primers).

You will get much better accuracy and have a much easier time keeping your muzzleloader clean.

I like pellets for the convenience. Call me lazy if you want but my Optima shoots great with 2 777 pellets. I don't see any need to me to have to measure and worry about spilling and everything. If I wasn't happy with the performance of my gun then I probably would but as of now I'm fine.

use speed loaders or powder tubes. Less cost per shot, blackhorn209 doesnt suck up moisture like pellets, dont have to worry about pellets cracking and causing a spike in pressure. BH209, if someone were to write a new bible, blackhorn209 would be in it.
