I shoot a Savage smokeless muzzleloader. The most accurate load I found is 45 grains 5744 smokeless powder, Hornady FTX 325 grain bullet in .458 diameter (this is a 45/70 bullet), used with the orange high power sabots. You use the orange sabots because they are designed for the fatter diameter bullet. Absolutely devastating bullet. I tried the Barnes bullets and they were not accurate and very hard for me to load. Maybe it was my gun or maybe it was me or maybe the bullet/sabot combo but I could not get the Barnes to shoot for me.

Can't shoot smokeless powder in a TC Impact.

What kind of fps you getting bigfoot?

Rubberduck270, I am not sure of my FPS but every deer I have shot has run less than 75 yards and given up the ghost.

Na. Stick with what you listed in your original post and get some regular shotgun shell 209 primers. Start with 110 volume measured grains of Blackhorn 209 and you should be set.
