Re: Need recommendations for load.
I have a .54 renegade, use to use 430 grain maxie and 100 grains of pyrodex select. Caplock gun - Never missed a beat. The only thing I don't like about the maxie is that they drill a hole in and out no expansion, consequently no blood trail. I went to a 240 grain bullet with thompson center 3 piece sabot - devestating heavy blood trail, They shot 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards with 100 grain of pyrodex select. Hawk Presision Bullets have 44 cal bullets 265 grain and up with MMP sabots for a fifty. I have some 240 grain and 265 grain bullets to try out of my CVA Accura when it warms up, The bullets look pretty good. I believe they might have something you could use. They have .429 - .430 : .451 - .452 and .498 - .500 sabots. They have bullets for all the sabots mentioned. I believe they have bullets for .50 cal up to 400 grains, Flat Point and Hollow Point. Good luck with your gun. If you try some of the Hawk bullets let me know how they shoot.
