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.
