Thanks for the info on the powder ETH. I may be able to get that picked up. And I agree with you ewc I too think that is my problem. I think if i backed off my powder charge it would probably shoot better. But for not I will hunt with what I have.

Forget the Lilgun. Bad choice.

Am just curious as to why this is a bad choice?
(Was considering the Reloader 7 because it's available.)

I have used Reloader7 in .45s for a H4198 stand in, it is a good choice. I have never used it in the 50cal.

Lil'gun is a very hot powder, I haven't read much about using it for muzzleloaders. Maybe they are using it as a booster for a duplex load?

We used to shoot lilgun years ago. It worked really well at speeds unheard of back then 2,600-2,800 fps with a 250. Problem was we had to keep trying to reinforce the sabot, because sabot kept blowing (hint #1 there was a problem) and vent liners were eroded in as few as 4 shots (my personal experience and hint #2 something was wrong).

When RB (or maybe it was someone else) finally pressure tested what we had been shooting it was sobering. I believe we were in the mid-60's pressure-wise. Roughly twice the pressure we shoot today.

We all quit cold turkey.

Do a search for lilgun and savage 10ml2.

Try the 300 gr. Bullets with the same powder charge and your group will tighten

Nothing about changing a bullet weight will help him. Your idea is funny.

Although people use N-110 with 300 grn bullets I think it is a bad idea as N-110 builds pressure fast.
