i shoot muzzle loaders all the time and my optima only liked 100 gr of Pyrodex pellets or 85 gr of 777 loose with a 295 gr PB. I tried a lot of combos but this was the only one that shot well. |
I have pretty much gone to loose powder for everything. You get more shots for your money and it is easy to vary the charge. I weigh mine on a small electronic scale.
