I would really appreciate some opinions on muzzleloading projectiles. I've got a replica .45 cal. plains rifle (Traditions) with a 1:48" twist. I've always shot patched round balls at the range and have not hunted much with this rifle. I want to use it during the upcomming muzzleloading season and would like to try some of the newer projectiles. Would anyone have some adive on a good choice?

Welcome to tndeer. Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to your question. If you copy and paste this post in the Muzzleloader Forum, you are more likely to get some replies from folks in the know. Good luck.

check out Buffalo Bullet Co.

They have a good site, lots of stuff to look at and choose from.

Just be sure you sight in with whatever you use and see what you gun handles best. I had a Thompson center New Englander and it shot best with round ball....my Remington 700 shoots best with buffalo bullets...with either one at 100 yards the change of bullets changed the hit point by about 18 to 20 inches.
