I'm goin to try something new this year, Ive taken spring turkeys with 12-20 ga. shotguns and a few years ago I got lucky with my bow, this year I got a 12 ga. muzzleloader barrel for my encore, I was up at my cabin over the week end and shot about 20 shots out of it and I was really impressed, how it patterned, Its a little slow to reload, the choke is so tite you got to un screw it to reload your wad. But other than reloading , I think it will be a blast.....

I am searching for a White Tominator, but had the chance last spring to help a buddy figure out a load for his TK2000. I was impressed to say the least!

T/C Black Mountain Magnum w/ an Undertaker. Killed 4 with it so far, and you're right, there's nothing like trying to see thru the smoke to tell if he's floppin or leavin.

I'll be using a 20 gage flintlock with a jug choke. So far it is deadly at 30 yards with 36 hits on a turkey head target. Trying to develop a load that will kill to at least 35 yards seeing that in the early part of the season the foliage isn't fully out yet on the mountain I hunt... I have a 10 gage double barrel black powder gun that I've hunted with but it's not any good pass 25 yards for turkeys. It has an open and improved cylinder barrel on it but it kicks harder that my 3 1/2 mossberg. Has a steel butt plate. Good luck.

Shoot 102 gr.777 with no.5 or 6 mag.shot works great.
Never tried hevi shot but have been thinking about it.
