Yeah buddy, I just made a deal for a .54 caliber sidelock, T/C Renegade, with a 26", 1:48 twist barrel . I figured I give shooting some roundballs a chance next season. I've got some areas that are real thick with cedar brush that this rifle will be perfect for. \:\) Anyone got any load suggestions? I'll get some pictures up when it arrives.

I've been there before. Stopped hanging around when they deleted the inline forum. Guess I need to visit again, soon.

My KRB shoots a 410 gr. GP conical and a 250 gr. Barnes expander exceptionally well. I'm wanting to use the renegade for roundballs but I'll also play with some conical loads as well. Hornady makes a 425 gr. hollow point great plains conical that should be hell on wheels. This will primarily be my short range, brush rifle. I hunt a few places around Percy Priest that are just plain thick with cedar. A 50 yard shot is a long one.

I'll keep an eye out for those sabots you need.
